The Nice Kicks x Amoeba Music x New Balance 992 is a one-of-a-kind project. It’s a rare collaboration between a sneaker and a retro-styled music record store. Perfect for those that still admire retro-styled physical stores!

Before we take a detailed look, let me walk you through some background info.

Amoeba Music x New Balance

After beginning in 2001, the new balance 900 series really took off and is still considered one of NB’s top-selling running shoes.

Even in 2020, we saw an array of popular sneakers such as the New Balance 920 Made in the UK and the 900 V5 “My Story Matters”.

The New Balance 992 released in 2006 for the series’ 100th anniversary! That’s quite a special occasion and for that occasion came a very special sneaker. This April, New Balance is pairing up with Amoeba Music and Nice Kicks for yet another special collaboration.

Amoeba Music is an independent music chain that’s based in the US. It was founded in 1996 in Berkeley, California and after a series of struggles during the decline in demand for CDs, they managed to survive and still operate in California. Amoeba Music, with its incredibly expansive lineup of all kinds of music, is a passion project that’s adored by many.

With the help of Nice Kicks, a company started by and for sneaker enthusiasts, the trio aims to deliver a memorable sneaker project to all their fans.

To estimate how hyped the Nice Kicks x Amoeba Music x New Balance 992 might be, let’s head over to StockX.

Concepts x New Balance 992 Teal

The Sole Supplier

Retail Price: N/A

Peak Resell: $580

Release Date: 10/25/2020


These sneakers feature an upper that’s a mix of purple, teal, red, and various hits of charcoal. Teal mudguards and tongues provide contrast while white midsoles and grey outsoles complete the design.

New Balance’s collaboration with Concepts is usually successful and these are no exception. The average retail price is over $300 while they’ve even been sold for as high as $580. The Nice Kicks x Amoeba Music x New Balance 992 will likely have even higher resale values.

Estimated Resell: $300-$350

This collaboration includes 2 brand new sneakers and a set of apparel that costs from $33-$70 a pop.

Both sneakers come in a mesh build, the first sports dark and contrasting color tones while the second wears more muted colors.

Teal covers the toes while black eye stays and side panels are contrasted by blazing red laces. White/black midsoles and grey outsoles complete the look.

The second sneaker features bright yellow toes that contrast the rest of the grey upper. Mint green laces add a touch of novelty while white midsoles and dark rugged outsoles finish off the design.

“Peace” written in bubble writing replace NB’s logo and instead, hint at the California-based record store.
