While Broadacre City was never built and is just a figment of the imagination, it’s now taking form in fresh New Balance 998 sneakers. The New Balance Made in USA 998 – Broadacre City edition draws from Wright’s Broadacre City sketches in his 1932 book, The Disappearing City, and comes by way of American lifestyle brand Kith and the Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation to commemorate the shoe style’s 35th anniversary.
