Editor’s Notes: Officially dubbed Mustard x Ketchup x Relish, New Balance and J. Crew’s latest sneaker collaboration is inspired by summer barbeques and the condiments that are usually available at such gatherings.

The condiment-inspired New Balance 998 is available exclusively at select J. Crew stores and online and is part of a larger BBQ-themed collection featuring tees, boxers, keychains, and baseball caps — all of which can be shopped at J. Crew.

When bought in store, the shoes come with special packaging, which is sure to please the sneakerheads that appreciate well thought-out collaborations.
