Wellgosh | Trainer Of The Week | New Balance “Barber Shop” Pack

We’ve teamed up with online store Wellgosh to provide you with their current favourite “Trainer Of The Week” to feature on our blog and in our weekly newsletter.  There are no other rules other than we have to feature a new style each week and give a description of why it’s their “Trainer Of The Week”. To find out more about Wellgosh click HERE. 

This week I’ve bent the rules slightly and picked three silhouettes for Trainer of the Week.  The three are the New Balance 580, 999 and 1600 that make up the Elite Edition ‘Barber Shop’ Pack.
New Balance
The ‘Barber Shop’ Pack is inspired by the traditional barbershops becoming prolific in urban space once again in line with the current popularity of tailored cuts in menswear lines.  The pack’s colour story represents the heritage barber shop poles outside the shops, applied to three iconic athletic silhouettes from partnership programs.  Additional details applied to all of the silhouettes in the Elite Collection include: striped aglets, pig suede and mesh upper and checkerboard insoles reminiscent of barber shop floors.  The high-quality craftsmanship you find in every New Balance shoe is taken even further in the Elite Edition Classics. Highly collectible, and in limited supply, these shoes set the standard for street style.
The cult 580 is an innovative and technical runner, constructed with smooth suede uppers, perforated panels and leather detailing with a roll bar sole unit for motion control.  The Barbershop 580 features a rich red suede upper that refers to barbershop chairs alongside grey accents reminiscent of chrome barber equipment.
New Balance
The 999 is constructed with some of the most innovative running technological features New Balance has to offer.  Assembled with premium pig suede uppers, perforated panels, leather detailing, a C-Cap midsole, with an Abzorb sole unit sat underneath for added cushioning.  The 999 features grey hues representative of chrome barber tools and the barbershop pole.
 New Balance
The 1600 is a classically clean runner with suede uppers, perforated panelling and embroidered detailing applied to the upper sitting above an Abzorb midsole.  The palette again, is inspired by the colours found on a barbershop pole, with red and white sitting alongside each other on the upper and midsole, with grey accents referring to the chrome equipment found in a barbershop.  Checkered insoles and striped lace aglets finish off this Elite Edition Classic. All three silhouettes are available in-store and online at Wellgosh.  Stock and Sizes are limited.
