This summer, New Balance joins forces with Philadelphiaâ€™s premier footwear and street apparel boutique, UBIQ, to create the UBIQ X New Balance 1600 â€œThe Benjamin.â€ Inspired by Philadelphiaâ€™s heritage and one of Americaâ€™s Founding Fathers, the UBIQ X New Balance 1600 will be release in a limited quantity beginning June 29 at UBIQ with a suggested retail price of $175.00.
For the first-time partnership, New Balance and UBIQ chose the New Balance 1600, one of the most premium styles in New Balanceâ€™s classic portfolio and a style that has never been used for a collaboration launch. The UBIQ X New Balance 1600 â€œThe Benjaminâ€ pays
homage to one of Americaâ€™s Founding Fathers and his Philadelphia roots. The patriotic red, white and blue uppers are accented with American saddle tan leather details, while the speckled midsole represents the brick and mortar buildings of old Philadelphia. Stars on the tongue label are inspired by the first American flag. To keep the style fresh and protected, the UBIQ X New Balance 1600 will also come with a complimentary shoe bag
