…New Balance is making comic book 480s?

New Balance 480 Comic

New Balance is making a shoe for the comic book fan (a surprisingly untapped market). Their 480 Comic will be a limited edition of the regular 480, and will feature black and white comic artwork with red detailing. Inspired by the current revival of the movie super hero, these kicks might not give you any super powers, but they will help you chase down crime on the mean city streets if that’s what you decide to do with your spare time. Pow.

…You need a start in sneakers?


If you’re looking to get into the kick culture, Product Dose has put together a guide called Sneakers For Starters. Featuring the classics, the underdogs, and the new additions, it will make sure you know the difference between “the bad-ugly (say, Sketchers) from the good-ugly (Greedy Genius), and the unhyped conventional (New Balance) from the overhyped conventional (Nike)” in no time. It’s good to know where to start.
