It Was a Dark and Stormy Collaboration

Todd Snyder Teams Up With New Balance to Make a Cocktail-Inspired Summer Sneaker

June 27, 2018 Style By

The Dark ‘N’ Stormy: a simple and satisfying summertime beverage if there ever was one. The combination of dark rum and ginger beer is, supposedly, the preferred drink of menswear designer Todd Snyder and, as such, serves as the inspiration for this collaboration with New Balance. Based on the 998 silhouette, the new sneakers feature a combination of deep navy blue and black and are made in the United States from premium materials, including leather trim from the legendary Horween tannery in Chicago. They’re available right now, though only through the Todd Snyder website.
