New Balance has breathed life to its 498 model ever since its release back in 2000. The New Balance 498 Collection comes in nine colorways set to release for the Fall 2009 line. The first colorway, set in silver/black, was launched last month to start things off. Other colorways set for later this year including green/silver, khaki/grey, purple/silver, brown/tan and grey/burgundy. Each shoe features synthetic leather uppers and mesh materials. Aside from asthetics, the 498 is comprised of Abzorb cushioning for ultra comfort. Releases will begin in August and will retail for $80 at NB retailers such as Finishline.
