Most of the major menswear brands have teamed up with New Balance for an exclusive release of custom 997s. J.Crew did a Cortado sneaker based on the popular espresso drink and the Moonshot sneaker inspired by Apollo 11 which were great, but we’re currently most inspired by the Todd Snyder x New Balance “Love” 997 sneakers that were created for Pride month. To make this particularly colorful sneaker with its palette featuring white peach, cedar quartz, and copper rose, Todd Snyder asked the Lesbian & Gay Big Apple Corps “Why Do You March?” Snyder himself said ,”I couldn’t be more pleased to release the LOVE 997 into the world. This is one of my all-time favorite New Balance silhouettes, but a totally new variation redesigned with strikingly fresh colors.” There’s no doubt that the combination of of suede, perforated leather, rainbow embroidery and Made in the USA construction–especially with this colorway–make this a worthwhile sneaker.

We pride ourselves on being able to tackle problems and jigsaw puzzles like everyone else–from the edge pieces in. That’s a little more difficult when it comes to thousand piece adventures like the Moon puzzle you see here. In is out, out is in, and there’s an entire quadrant of almost fully gray pieces that depict the lunar surface, but all of that just adds to the productive difficulty you’ll experience when you’re assembling this jigsaw version of modern history. As they tell it, “July 16, 2019 marked the 50 year anniversary of the Apollo 11 launch – the historic mission to the Moon where Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin became the first of humankind to set foot on the Moon. Our Moon puzzle celebrates this momentous achievement and will challenge and delight puzzle solvers everywhere.”
