Super Team 33 launch

I hope everyone that was out for a pair of Super Team 33’s managed to get theirs today! Shoe Biz II here in SF had a cool little launch party set up with the shoes in a cooler chest and netted cage displays, along with tins of gummy fish, haha. It was a tough choice but I walked out with a pair of the Butterflys. The packaging rounds it out with custom box, tags, insole, and even a matching t-shirt. Pics below.

574 EGL Lemon Green Black

Out now at Overkill is a bright lemon yellow, grey and black 574 for € 110 incl tax. Check out the yellow outsole, polka dots behind the “N”, use of mesh in several colors, and contrast between the white leather and black laces. This one seems a good match for the latest red 574.

September 2007 Preview

Over at Nice Kicks you can find a preview of NB’s September 2007 offerings. There appear to be two 576s, two 1500s(?) and two 990s.

These are clearly a step in a different direction with louder prints, simple N’s that appear to have been applied with a paint stick, contrast stitching and new model number tag placements.

576 Classic Cars pack available now

This is proving to be a huge week for NB addicts as the Classic Cars trio has just dropped at End Clothing UK. These are top of the line editions with excellent details. Note the special “speedometer” insoles, the metallic bit at the top of the laces and heel (I’m sure there’s a name for that), and the lace locks.
