Buying shoes endorsed by athletes or entertainers has always made sense but rocking runners to celebrate your favorite writers, not so much until now. The New Balance Distinct Authors Collection is back with another chapter in the book of fall fashion.

This time the drop finds the New Balance ML966 going dark grey with a few shades of nubuck, wool and textured leather as well. The result is a shoe that is tonally pretty drab however texturally rich enough to make up for any lack of color.

These are on shelves now at select New Balance retailers including Bows & Arrows who has them for $240. We know that you're thinking thats quite a pretty penny to pay but if you want an impressive library sometimes you gotta plunk down some extra cash.
