Chicago’s JoeFreshGoods and New Balance are back, teeing up their third collaboration in as many years. This time around, Joe and his team will help introduce the upcoming 9060 silhouette, a wild new sneaker for the NB brand.
JoeFreshGoods and New Balance have the sneaker community wrapped around their finger right now. Starting with Joe’s heart-inspired take on the 992 for the NBA’s All-Star Weekend in 2020, which was followed by the “Outside Clothes” 990v3 in Fall 2021. Now, the relationship between JFG and New Balance appears to be taking a big step forward, with Joe and his team helping to launch the 9060, a wild new silhouette from New Balance. The unreleased sneaker has already surfaced in a few colorways so far, giving us a good look at what to expect from the new model. The upper follows New Balance’s classic mesh and suede designs, constructed from numerous panels, all of which is mounted on a two-piece midsole, easily the most eye-catching part of the new shoe. The 9060’s midsole unit mixes two distinct pieces, one simple looking EVA rubber piece, along with a row of bulbous, toe-like features that likely add support to the new silhouette.
