The birth of the automobile was an exciting time in Michigan's history and introduced a new standard in luxury transportation. Like the early automotive line, the Premier x New Balance 998 "Made in USA" features fine attention to detail. The upper consists of tan and black suede, mimicking a brass front panel and black chassis. Other details include a white sole, premium leather tongue and a quilted-seat Premier-branded insole. To finish it off, every pair came with a hangtag set featuring a New Balance key and Premier license plate.
