Wish List: Premier x New Balance M998 "PRMR"

Michigan-based retailer Premier teams up with New Balance for an ode to Motor City with the classic M998. The "PRMR" 998, which has me aching to do a two-step with this two-tone colorway, is a tribute of sorts to Ford's Model T - widely revered as the car that solidified the start of the automotive industry in the early 20th century. The sneaker's upper comes equipped with black and gold suede while the interior comes with a printed insole, mimicking quilted leather seating.

The design is in the details with this one as a clever key-shaped hangtag adds to the whip appeal of this collaboration.

The shoe has a retail price of $220 and will be available for purchase at 9 a.m. on August 22nd at Premier stores, with a limited online release to follow, starting at noon. For the shoe’s limited online release, the retailer will post a link to purchase the shoes on the company’s Twitter account. A wider release to select retailers will hit the streets beginning on September 5.

Snaps: Nina Dobrev Makes New Moves in New Balance 574 For SELF Magazine

After the news of her departure from The Vampire Diaries, actress Nina Dobrev is kicking back on the June 2015 cover of Self Magazine. Dobrev goes air born for the photo shoot, opting for colorful activewear paired with an equally colorful pair of New Balance 574s from the brand's Pop Tropical collection. Discussing her final season on The Vampire Diaries, the 26 year-old actress is reflective: “It’s important for me that it be epic and powerful. I feel like I’m a completely different person than I was and I’ve grown so much. It’s been a big part of my life, and I want it to be beautiful. I want it to end well.”

She continues, “I’ve loved working on this show. It’s been such a crazy, awesome adventure, and I’ve been surrounded by so many people who I consider family. I know this is a new exciting step in the right direction for me, but it’s going to be so strange not to be with them.” Read more on Self.com.
