September 2007 Preview

Friday, January 19th, 2007

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

Wednesday, January 17th, 2007

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.

M574LEBB M574LEBT nice leather & cotton 574s

Tuesday, January 16th, 2007

This brown leather & beige cotton upper 574 (M574LEBB) and matching tan leather and brown cotton version (M574LEBT) are now widely available for about $80. NB Tampa has a prime deal right now – $75 and free shipping on both the BB and BT. Zappos also has the BB for $80.

I'm really feeling the combination of browns and the textures on this one. Check out the fiber pattern on the sole as well.

Sale at Hanon

Monday, January 8th, 2007

Heads up, couple excellent deals on select sizes of limited edition New Balance models at Hanon Shop.

1700 United Arrows

Tuesday, January 2nd, 2007

Happy New Year all! Hope the holidaze was a good one. I'm sure everyone has been there done that and is ready to get on with the 007, so on to a couple updates…

Here's a simple yet classy collab between NB and the United Arrows shop out of Japan, now available at ZOZOTOWN. Materials are oiled leather and canvas so I bet these are swanky in person. Looks like they are retailing at 18,900 yen in half sizes from 8-11. Jump here to purchase.

1500 snea-q

Saturday, December 2nd, 2006

Berlin's snea-q has dropped a minimal black and silver 1500, available now at their online shop for €150 and limited to 150 pairs.

At first glance it's similar to the plain vanilla 1500s but they've added some carbon panels, shiny silver accents, and what looks like a cream leather interior. Nice shoe!
