Quiet as kept, retro skiwear is much more influential to this current 90’s fashion revival than most like to give the genre credit for. Think back to those colorful Polo Ralph Lauren and Tommy Hilfiger jackets/tops; much of that same style was a fixture at your nearest ski resort.

New Balance odes to this under appreciated movement with the 998 Made in USA “Ski” edition. Cleverly curated with unique color blocking courtesy of dark grey and turquoise hues, a smooth infusion of suede and mesh fabrication give the shoe a premium aesthetic like the splashes of red liven the already vibrant overlook.

The New Balance 998 Made in USA “Ski” is available now for $180 at Sneaker Politics.
