When Nice Kicks’ founder and publisher Matt Halfhill was given the opportunity to collaborate with New Balance, he immediately drew inspiration from Grand Anse – the Caribbean beach where he spent his teenage years. Every panel on this unique New Balance 1600 is inspired by that beach: the aqua toe represents the shallow waters, the darker blues recall the deeper parts of the bay, the light grey recreates the sand, and white highlights are symbolic of the sails of boats. A reflective tongue gives off the effect of the sun shimmering on the waves. Nice Kicks dropped these a few weeks ago, but a limited number of pairs have arrived at BAIT Diamond Bar. We’ll have them for sale today on a first-come, first-serve basis.
