With the advent of people showcasing how they’re aiming to be the ultimate GOAT aka Greatest of All Time, New Balance and Stance decided to team up with the production of special editions of the New Balance FuelCore Sonic and Stance run socks.
The “GOAT” aspect of this collab is evident with the FuelCore Sonic’s white and grey colored upper, along with insoles that are printed with a literal goat to be a bit pun-ny. On the outside, there are metallic gold highlights on the footwear, along with “All Time” printed in gold as a reference to a first place medal. Stance’s blue also appears on the Boa dial for the FuelCore Sonic.
On the other hand, the Stance run socks have a nice blend of white and grey textured pattern, with accents in gold and blue. The socks are made with “a proprietary fiber blend, breathable integrated mesh and anatomically correct construction, engineered to keep each foot supported where it counts.”
This collaboration was released earlier this month and started with the 997 and 1978 lifestyle shoes that came with socks to tie the both brands together. The releases are inspired by the areas where both brands started out– Boston and San Clemente, CA. The collaboration between New Balance and Stance will continue until the end of 2017, with more launches coming before summer ends and in the fall.
The “ALL TIME” pack is currently available on NewBalance.com, Stance.com, and in selected New Balance stores. The price for both the shoes and the socks is at $149.99 and comes in men’s sizes 4 to 14.
