Part of a three-piece limited edition collection that’s just been launched in Singapore recently, the New Balance Limited Edition 890V3 series is dedicated to the world’s 3 most popular running cities, and rightfully there are different designs/colour combinations for Boston, London and Tokyo.
Priced at SGD185 a pair, London and Tokyo editions are already available at NB Concept Stores locally. London features colours coral/blue/grey and is a tribute to Savile Row, incidentally also known as the ‘golden mile of tailoring’, while the one for Tokyo features a green/red design and is dedicated to a Japanese icon, the crane, for good fortune and longevity.
Which brings us to the 3rd pair, the Limited Edition Boston 890V3 (shown above), which will only be launched at the Sundown Marathon come 17 May. Also priced at SGD185 a pair, its most distinguishing feature has got to be the fact that it glows in the dark. Where it’s yellow on the running shoe is also where it will glow, including the base which will literally light up like stars in the dark.
Available in sizes for both men and women, it’s a practical pair for those who like jogging/running especially a night. Or those who want to dazzle/stun onlookers with ‘nifty’ dance moves at the club.
