Recently I worked with Sneaker Freaker Magazine and New Balance to help them put out their book titled “Craftsmanship & Imagination”. Basically this 60-odd page zine documents some of the company’s history as well as stories from NB heads around the world (including yours truly). These puppies aren’t for sale so you’ll have to drop by a participating store and ask extra nicely if you want a copy. If you’re in Brisbane you can grab a copy from Laced right now.

Nice Surprise by Matt

Got these little ditties just yesterday as a “thank you” present from New Balance Australia for helping them out on a project they’ve been working on. Details on that will be revealed in good time, but until then I’m just stoked to have these in my hands since they aren’t coming to Australia and I’ve already expressed how awesome I thought they were. Seems if you hint enough things will work out… (not really).

With Taz rolling a few of Nike’s current Lunar shoes, myself having these 2002s, NB 890s and with the Surface to Air Asics coming to Laced really soon we might compile a bit of a review on some of these modern day runners. I’d really like to include the adidas EQT Remodel and possibly something from Saucony (like the A3) but things cost money and I’m poor!

New Balance has set their sights directly at Nike’s Lunar program with their newest shoe, the 890. You may or may not remember me freaking out over this shoe when we saw it late last year, and then when NB was kind enough to send me a sample pair.

Well now they’ve released in the States and NB is going all-out to show everyone just how light their newest model is. Hit the jump to see a cheeky ad that’s doing the rounds or hit up the dedicated site for all the info and online video campaign.
