New Balance Athletics and Stone Island, an Italian sportswear brand recently acquired by Moncler, are joining forces to kick off what they have described as “a long-term relationship.” The first New Balance x Stone Island shoes are set to drop later this year. The partnership was first teased via the respective Instagram channels of the two brands. New Balance and Stone Island previously teamed up in 2013 for a limited co-branded edition of the New Balance SI-577 running shoe.
