As a brand that is known primarily for its technology and quality as opposed to hyped up releases, New Balance's inline collections are always subtle. The 'Connoisseur Painter' Collection is no exception and here is a better look at one of the colorways included in the drop.

The New Balance 998 is given an olive suede and mesh upper with bright orange and blue accents for an interesting level of contrast that shakes things up quite a bit. Perforated paneling also plays into the subtlety of things as well while black blends into the overall colorway and almost gets lost.

A drop that boasts "paying tribute to legendary American artists who left their mark on our culture through unique color palettes" is clearly a good look with regards to colorway. Pick up your pair now at spots like Livestock or New Balance.
