NB 2016/17 maybe?
« on: April 08, 2016, 03:41:17 PM »

Following on from a post I made regarding exclusives from Players Sports NZ, I got a snapchat from their story depicting the new balance range for the forthcoming season over there... What do you all reckon. Big, big fan of the DC stuff!



Not many changes other than the pad design for the DC range and obviously the colour schemes

Yes i have seen the red/orange colourway as a sample, but no idea if it or the other range will come to the UK.

Based on the whole NB range to date being largely the same worldwide, i suspect the UK will get the same gear as the photo.

Shame the designs are identical, colour schemes are decent but was hoping for something a bit different!

Apart from the colours and a few changes to the labels (embossing etc) they've all been the same. But then again if people are buying more bats than ever then why change!

Only me that liked the White and Red Finch stickers? Would kill a man for a TC1260 in Finch's colours...

Not fussed on Red and Orange, Navy isn't bad... Don't like Fluorescent on anything really though.

Check eBay. There is one listing for a red/white NB TC1260 2.8lb.

Resisted so far, if they ever bring out the DC in some kind of emerald green with white letters I will be forced to buy one!

Have just placed our 2017 NB order (it used to be that GN were deemed to be early for the industry with June launches to retailers, but NB have beaten that by a fair distance!)

I can't show any imagery but the pictures in this topic are genuine, the shoes stick with the current red colour, but some of the shoe models incorporate the blue/yellow colourway

Overall no drastic changes but sure to be a popular range
