United Arrows’ Beauty & Youth label started 2012 off with a collaboration with Briefing on the New Balance 1700, and it turned out so well, they came back alone for a second round. The latest Beauty & Youth CM1700s keep things simple and classy like the first edition, this time sticking to the other mainstay in NB’s established canon as grey suede and mesh give way to navy blue for the sequel. These go a step further, though, adding luxurious caramel leather down the middle for a tasty treat that hints at the ever-colorful footbeds we’ve come to expect from NB’s Japanese collabs. These are coming up with a February 2013 release date and available for pre-order now HERE.
