New Balance Releases the "Connoisseur Guitar" Just in Time for Festival Season

Style blogger Tony Harris introduces the Connoisseur Guitar sneaker from New Balance—your new favorite shoe for festival season.

Festival season is underway and you’ve got to have the right pair of shoes to endure the mile walks and long lines with ease and comfort. Luckily with the New Balance Connoisseur Guitar 998, you can roam in relaxation and also give off a vibe that’s serious about style.

Expertly crafted from rich suede and mesh, the Connoisseur Guitar 998 is inspired by old rock ‘n’ roll and the glossy, bold finishes found on the bodies of classic American guitars. To show true inspiration, they’ve even gone the extra bar to add a custom “NB” guitar pick to every pair. Besides the aesthetics, the shoe is highly functional as well; equipped with AZORB technologies that assimilate shock and displace energy — not to mention, ensuring the ultimate comfort and cushion against rigorous impacts.

We’re confident this shoe works for your festival frolics and also serves as a modish addition to your shoe collection. Only available in the shown colorway, the shoe retails for $170.00 at NewBalance.com or select retailers. Get a closer look here after the jump.
