New Balance Athletics, Inc. teamed up with Vancouver-based menswear label wings + horns for the glorious wings + horns x New Balance 580 Deconstructed.
The original New Balance MT850 was developed and released in 1996, Japan. To commemorate its 20th anniversary, this iconic shoe is now re-invented for a contemporary silhouette. Expect to see laser-cut panels of premium leather, finished with the classic whipstitch heel. The wings + horns x New Balance will be gracing our feet with an ultra comfortable Neoprene mesh sock liner integrated with the signature cushioned REVlite sole for a smooth balance of comfort and breathability. Influenced by the natural tones from the wings + horns Spring/Summer collection, the shoes will be available in two essential colourways – sand and black.
Driven by a mutual respect for classic design and quality creation, this is without a doubt, one of summer’s most invigorating sneaker collaborations.
wings + horns x New Balance 580 Deconstructed, $229. Available exclusively at Leftfoot Entrepot, The Cathay from 28 May.
