Big congrats to SNKR FRKR forum member Alex Gibson who won a NB UK design contest, scooping up a pair of custom 577's and a trip to the Flimby factory — massive!

Members of the site Sneaker Freaker won the New Balance design contest. As contest winners they got a trip to the New Balance Factory in Flimby where they were able to create the shoe they had designed. The NB they created was 577 with the theme Walk With The Colours of England.

Super Team 33 launch

Saturday, January 20th, 2007

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

Friday, January 19th, 2007

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.
