Streetwear and sneaker retailer Jimmy Jazz joins forces with sportswear giant New Balance to release a limited collection of footwear in celebration of Marvel’s cultural phenomenon, Black Panther. The collection includes two unique styles: the New Balance 574 Sport and the 990v4 Mid.
The 574 Sport, a contemporary take on the iconic, off road running silhouette, brings Black Panther‘s suit to life built with rugged leather and knit materials that combine with black and silver metallic accents, 3M laces, a Marvel lace keeper, Black Panther icon logo stamped insole, a reflective ’N’ logo, and debossed tribal details all come together for a style worthy of Wakandan lore.
The 990v4 Mid will have you living T’calla’s warrior-king lifestyle as the details for this limited edition model are inspired by the Panther’s stunning Vibranium suit. The upper is done in premium pig suede and Cordura materials for added durability during the winter months. A lug outsole was used, as were heavy metal grommets and eyelets adding to the seasonal relevancy. Rounding out the details are a reflective ‘N’ logo and toe, combined with black and silver metallic accents, 3M laces, a Marvel lace keeper, & Black Panther icon logo stamped insole.
Each style is presented in a unique black box with bold Marvel and New Balance logos. The collection releases on February 9 in limited quantities only within select Jimmy Jazz stores and online here. Then, additional limited quantities will release on February 16 on New Balance’s site. The 574 Sport will retail for $129.95, while the 990v4 Mid will be set at $209.95.
