If there ever was an occasion to be a proud Philly native, now is definitely the time — especially on the eve of this fire New Balance drop in collaboration with local lifestyle retailer DTLR VILLA.



The multicolored silhouette, officially deemed the “Four 4 Four,” is just a sight to see from all angles. From an “Emerald Green” toe box to a season-appropriate pumpkin orange tongue — the entire shoe done up in a premium pig suede construction for added measure — this is one release that many cities will be extremely tight they are missing out on. Then again, we can’t think of a better reason to visit the City of Brotherly Love than to cop one of the freshest NB releases that we’ve seen in a very long time. To our Philly sneakerheads out there, please do your absolute best to not sleep on picking this one up at your local spot at all. Don’t be the one kicking yourself in the head over the fact that you missed out, especially since it’s limited to only 215 pairs.

Pick up the DTLR VILLA x New Balance 998 “Four 4 Four” this Friday (October 26) for $210 USD, exclusively at the brand’s Philadelphia flagship store. Check it out in better detail below:
