Dropping this week is a great collab from the New Balance Flimby handmade factory is a pair of 577s designed in collaboration with Stockholm’s Sneakers n Stuff and Milkcrate Athletics. While on the same model and featuring the same materials, the two shoes come from totally different sides of the design spectrum. The louder version of the two features Milkcrate’s bright colors and as he puts it “party animal” style. The pink, blue, yellow, and purple suede upper is topped off with a green new balance ‘N’ and white perforated leather on the toebox and ankle cuff. While not for this writer personally the shoes mish mash of colors surprisingly works on this model for some reason. The second model in the collab is a must for me. It features SNS more toned down design style that falls in line with both Europe retro runner style and New Balance’s style as well. Featuring a grey scale upper of the same premium suede the pack is tied together by the same perforated leather white toebox and ankle cuff. Both shoes include tonal rubber hangtags with Milkcrate/SNS branding and branded insoles as well. Check out the pics below as well as a video describing the inspiration for the collaboration. Available at a select retailers throughout the world you can picks yours up online Monday at Hanon.
