Benjamin Franklin is one of the better known residents of Philadelphia. His standing in the US is so great that his face graces the hundred dollar bill. Philadelphia based UBIQ draws inspiration from the historical figure to craft its latest collaboration with New Balance.
The subject of the collaboration is the 1600, which is built on a gum sole with a suede upper that trades between blue and red with a touch of tan. Furthering the revolutionary theme, UBIQ has hooked up a "don't tread on me" snake adorned tee to match the kicks. A release date is set for Saturday, the 29th of June.
