UBIQ x New Balance 1600 “The Benjamin”

The UBIQ x New Balance 1600 “The Benjamin” will be released worldwide July 27th. Here’s the history behind the sneaker. 

The UBIQ x New Balance 1600 “The Benjamin” features a patriotic palette of red and blue suede plus a speckled white midsole, inspired by Philadelphia (where UBIQ originates) – America’s first capital. “The Benjamin” of course, pays homage to the one and only Benjamin Franklin, one of the Philly’s most lauded historical figures.

The global launch date is set for July 27th. The shoe will be available at Limited Edt in Singapore and will retail for $229 – stay tuned for updates.
