Complex reports:

“This July, New Balance will release two limited edition “Flag” versions of their 574 model. Designed by the NB Japan team, the two models garner inspiration from the upcoming American Football World Cup, which is held every four years. This year, the competition will take place throughout the month of July in Kawasaki, Japan.

G-Flash by G-Shock x KIKS TYO x New Balance

Wednesday, May 30th, 2007

Japanese streetwear label and retailer, KIKS TYO released today the first preview of their footwear collab with New Balance and G-Shock.

Celebrating the 25th Anniversary of Casio’s rugged and high-tech G-Shock watch line, the “G-Flash” series includes two pairs of NB 574s as well as a modified 320. The shoes match a pair of KIKS TYO x G-Shock watches to be released worldwide in August 2007.

Founded in 2006 by DJ, designer and streetwear/sneaker culture personality hobby:tech (Shinichi Izaki), KIKS TYO has since gained recognition worldwide for its dedication to producing well crafted, high-quality apparel and accessories based on sneakers and sport culture.

The G-Flash 574 comes in a black/yellow and yellow/black colorway, the 320 in black/red. All three make use of paint-speckling on the leathers as well as custom lace locks. There appears to be some patent leather in there as well. I like these, the colors really pop and the designs are eye-catching without going overboard. Stay tuned for more info and pics.

574 AVENJ Sean D’Anconia

Thursday, May 24th, 2007

Update — more pics here.

Xymon again with more details on the New Balance AVENJ artist series 574 (previously).

Much like the previous artist editions by Josh Wisdumb and Eric Haze, this time NB presents Sean D’Anconia of Her Majesty’s Secret studios.


The shoe pays homage to 70’s grindhouse cinema using a collage of the icons of the era: streets of Harlem to the skyscrapers of Hong Kong, from Yakuza to KungFu. Check out the detailing in the closeups below.




Trivia: Sean regularly slips references to Atlas Shrugged in his artwork…have a good close look if you get your hands on this 🙂

574 Japanese Conbini pack

Thursday, May 24th, 2007

I guess bodegas must be as pervasive in Japanese cities as American ones because New Balance is releasing a 576 574 “Conbini” trio bearing the colors of convenience stores, 7-Eleven, ampm and Family Mart.

Some form of familiarity on this one. We’ve seen Bathing Ape do their highly successful [exclusive] set of Bape Sta on the same concept and now NB-Jpn replicates with the 576 574 [Ed.–NBB]. Inspired by the conbini stores allover Japan [43,667 at last count in 2005], check out these 3 flavors all featuring suede and patent leather, with reflective detailing.

New Balance 2007 – 2008 preview

Monday, May 21st, 2007

Here we have some previews of 2008 and Fall 2007 NBs! Looks like 574/576’s along with a pair of 710 hightops and a pair of Zips.

The first three (whites with the crazy N’s, the black & golds, and the brown thatched Zips) are reportedly for 2008, the rest for Fall 2007.

UPDATE — Got some ID’s on these thanks to Drew NB. The first white one is in the Japanese A0 series with one-piece construction and stitching similar to the 574ILL. The black/gold polkadots is a Japanese 576. The Zip is a US design with reflective 3M and suede woven together. The hightop 710 is also Japanese, as are the orange/red/blue and black/green/yellow 576’s below it. After that we have a US artist edition NB 574 collaboration with Avenj, and lastly a US 576 Factory Plaids celebrating NB’s domestic factories in Maine, also available in purple and navy Woolrich material. All of these will be available in the US starting in Fall 2007.
