We still have two weeks until Independence Day, but these kicks have caused such a firestorm on the interwebs that you might want to start planning your outfit for the 4th now. Made in the USA, J.Crew teamed up with New Balance to create a pair of 998’s that are the perfect combination of street and normcore steeze. With the classic red, white and blue colorway, the shoes come with an ABZORB sole and are only available at select J.Crew stores (Boston, Costa Mesa, Hong Kong, Honolulu, London, LA, NYC, San Francisco) and for a very limited time at j.crew.com on June 18th (today). If you’re not in one of these major cities, you’ll want to hit up the website as soon as possible, as these are sure to fly off the shelf.
UPDATE: Aaaaand they’re gone.
