A quick glance through my past blog posts and you will quickly determine I am a giant New Balance fan. Even more so a fan of New Balance collaborations. Today we take a look at a new collaboration from Italy’s Stone Island sportswear brand. Stone Island is a brand known for its innovative research into fabrics that are both functional and fashionable at the same time. For their collaboration with New Balance they chose the 577 model which is a personal favorite of mine. The pack features two pairs, one muted and one a little louder reminiscent of the Milkcrate x SNS x New Balance 577 of last year. The first pair consists of a primarily grey and white upper that is comprised of Stone Island’s Raso Gommato which is satin weave cotton attached to a polyurethane cover. There is a black rubber reflective N logo hit as well as Stone Island branded tongue tags and lace locks. The shoe is finished off with a speckled grey midsole that immediately brings to mind the classic Jordan IV White Cement. The second pair from the pack features all of the same materials but in a brighter orange colorway and the same branded logo hits. The N logo hit on this pair is a reflective white rubber and they sit on a solid color midsole. These pairs are currently available at Stone Island locations in Italy and elsewhere. No further information on release at other New Balance accounts has dropped but I for one hope to get a stab at them soon! What are your thoughts of this high end collaboration? Take a look at the pictures courtesty of High Snobiety and let me know in the comments below!
