These New Balances Are Based On the Book Catch-22

Joseph Heller's Catch-22 is one of our favorite books of all time, but strapping a couple paperbacks to our feet isn't something we'd consider stylish. The latest novel-inspired sneaker from New Balance draws inspiration from Heller's WWII satirical-soaked story. While this may seem like an odd idea, as you can see, the result is pretty damn good-looking. The Made in the USA 1400s feature Army Green suede uppers mixed with grey mesh and some bright red accents. We've spent the last day trying to justify spending $150+ on a pair of sneakers because they look that good.
