As mentioned before, collaborations are the name of the game in collectible sneakers these days. They typically feature special colorways and premium materials that make the sole freaks go nuts. This latest collaboration from New Balance and West NYC Sneaker boutique is no different. The model chosen as a canvas for this design is the MT580 that has been making a resurgence in popularity thanks to Detroit shop Burn Rubber and their 3 collabs on the shoe. For this iteration West NYC’s owner Lester Wasserman went back to the 90s for some inspiration from alpine and ski wear that was popular at the time. Wasserman loves the outdoors and was going for a look that gave that feel while still staying true to the MT580s running style. The results are nothing short of fantastic. Featuring a primarily grey premium suede upper and hits of teal and purple throughout this shoe will definitely turns heads coast to coast. The black midsole with teal speckles is sure to please and the look is completed with rope style outdoor laces. One of my personal favorite details is the rubber tongue emblem also done up in a teal and purple look. These are schedule to DROP September 22nd at WestNYC and details are still being released. Based on the initial shots a tshirt will also be available in complimentary colors. Take a look at the photos below and let me know if you will be plotting to cop your pair in a little over a week!
