Its not the first time we have seen the brogue treatment on a sneaker but to my memory its the first time we have seen it on a New Balance. Adding another shop to the mix of endless New Balance collaborators, Northridge’s INVINCIBLE gives it a go on the 1400 model that has been having a rebirth with J.Crew collabs of late. The shoe features a touch of a formal look with brogue detailing on the toe and heel cup punched into ultra premium navy suede. The premium materials continue with tonal leather laces and a white leather lining. All of this is sitting atop a white mid and outsole that gives the pair a clean look that’s sure to look great year round. The J.Crew 1400s I have are one of the most comfortable shoes I own so these are sure to have you riding on clouds while still snappin necks. These are set to DROP at INVINCIBLE May 18th with more shops to follow in late May and into June. The brogue look was a huge hit on Nike SBs Janoski Mid and I imagine the same will hold true with this nice makeup. Will you be classing up your New Balance collection with these 1400s? Take a look at a few more pics after the jump and let me know in the comments below.



Today we take a look at a DROP I was able to pick up myself on Saturday. The Stefan Janoski model of Nike SB has taken off like wildfire in 2011 featuring tons of different spins on the vulcanized boat shoe look. Word from the local skate shop (Subsect Skate Shop) is that the Janoskis are their best sellers for both skaters and nonskaters alike. This particular DROP is probably my favorite Janoski to date. It comes in the mid cut model and features a classic wingtip or brogue look on some absolutely buttery caramel colored leather. The silhouette sits atop an all white vulcanized sole with brown piping for detail. Finish them off with waxed brown laces and you’ve got a shoe that sends this portion of Nike Skateboard into 2011 with a positive finish. I love them for their versatility as well since they work with both an urban skater look and a casual khaki look. I actually broke them out right away for my wife’s holiday work party and they were snappin 50 year old necks all night! These DROPPED this past weekend and are a quick strike available through many SB retailers such as the previously mentioned Subsect and Michigan’s Premier.
