New Balance, continuing their support of GLSEN, an organization which provides safe spaces to school students, has recently announced their commitment to the LGBTQ+ issues that have unfortunately become so common now. The sneaker company will be releasing a New Balance 327, FuelCell Echo, slide sandal, and a few t-shirts in a collection, to celebrate Pride Month. All the pieces in the collection don a large array of colours, from orange and purple, to green and blue.
The slides, however, stay a bit more low-key, resorting to the “NEW BALANCE” and “NB” text to add all the colours, while the sports – oriented FuelCell Echo is a bright blue sneaker, with rainbow accents all over the sole and upper. The 327 stands out in this respect, with a brown outsole, and omits the rainbow laden outsoles the other pairs have. The “love since 1906” text is seen stamped on the insoles in a colourful manner.
The collection arrives on NewBalance.com on the 22nd of May, and to select retailers through June. The pricing of the FuelCell Echo, 327, Slide, and T-shirts are $110, $100, $35, and $30 respectively.
