Last week we took a look at the New Balance P790LK “Los Angeles Lakers”, a retro release of New Balance’s basketball sneakers once worn by LA Lakers great James Worthy. Today we’re following up with a look at the Boston Celtics edition of the New Balance 790, the P790CT to be exact.
The Lakers and the Celtics have had a long standing rivalry so it’s no surprise to see New Balance design the 790 Retro in a Celtics-esque colorways to counter the Lakers version. A combination of smooth white leather and perforated leather make up the base up the upper with accents of Celtic Green thrown in. Since these aren’t officially licensed by the NBA there is no Boston Celtics branding included anywhere on the shoes but the white/green is for sure enough for those who wanna show off their Celtic Pride.
I have no details on a US release at this time but the New Balance P790CT “Boston Celtics” is available now at select retailers overseas such as Shelta in Sweden.
