SNEAKERSNSTUFF over in Södermalm, Sweden has launched their third release of 577s, handmade at the NB Flimby factory in the UK. There are two models in the release, M577SNE (Erik – Midnight Navy/Purple/Turqoise/Green/White) and M577SNP (Peter – Black/White/3M).

Each model is limited to 150 pairs, available in half sizes from US 8.5-12 and currently on sale for US $140 (regular price US $175). This release is only available directly from SNS.

“This time is kind of different since NB finally agreed to put our SNS logo on the shoes. We were also able to make smaller quantities of the sole units and got the chance to make them more unique.” Congrats to SNS on another fantastic pair of 577s!

hanon Flying Club – NB M670BRY – Spitfire

Once again Hanon has done a great job of applying rare luxury and technical materials to a customized upper with classic style and old school details.

Features include:
– classic single-piece “N” in a 70’s/80’s style (gold/yellow as to be expected from hanon!)
– superior Wolverine leathers
– sueded pigskins
– vintage bound & unbagged mesh tongue
– Ventile smart fabric application
– 100% cotton old school laces
– aged EVA midsole unit
– custom propeller plane tongue label
– original polyurethane collar lining

Ventile is a British-made, densely-woven, 100% cotton, all-weather, breathable fabric. It was made popular in WWII by its application to flying suits worn by pilots who were required to bail into the ocean. Ventile is still used by tornado pilots with the RAF and NATO, as well as by Antarctic explorers and climbers of Mt. Everest.

M990EX BK Black Limited Edition

Thursday, July 5th, 2007

Out now at Mita is a limited edition black/purple 990. This was previewed about three months ago and said to be a tribute to Japanese console games.

Note the black patent leather, perforated purple suede and embroidered logo on the heel. The new pics show white instead of multicolor laces, a welcome change considering how busy the colors are elsewhere.

In the technology department the shoe features a 3/4-length ABZORB EX sole (hence “990EX”) for shock absorption. ABZORB EX is the combination of NB’s premium ABZORB foam material and an outside air bubble.

These will set you back approx USD $120.

NB 577 x Thomas i Punkt

Thursday, June 28th, 2007



High Snobiety reports:

“We’re proud to present you the first collaboration between New Balance and Thomas I Punkt. Their goal was to design a running shoe for people who like a fresh, new look and appreciate the little details. For this project they chose the New Balance 577, simply because it is a classic.

Everything started with a combination of grey heather sweat fabric and white full grain leather. New Balance exclusively fabricated an all white midsole and a heelcab with a light grey outsole. Each version carries a silkscreen dot pattern print.

The flaglabel on the tongue shows the skyline of the city of Hamburg, Germany, home of Thomas I Punkt. We love how the purple heel, the coloured stitching, the New Balance logo and the flaglabel perfectly fit together. They also decided to use a leather layer on the inside of the shoe to make it even more comfortable.

The white edition is limited to 120 pairs and the dots edition is limited to 74 pairs. Both shoes are numbered and come with two different laces and an I-Punkt dot pattern bandana. The sneakers will be released at Thomas I Punkt on 30th of June.”
