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.

A02 576 Black and Rasta

Monday, April 9th, 2007

We just saw the New Balance A01, here’s the A02 in black and rasta colors. It appears these are modified 576’s with a one-piece vamp, the new style of painted “N”s we saw in the Fall 2007 preview, denim fabrics, high-contrast stitching and a graffiti-style “New Balance” on the heel.

A01 drop at Tsuruya

Monday, April 9th, 2007

Tsuruya is selling the A01 in pink (A01 CP) and yellow (A01 CY) [looks like more yellow than green to me at least]. Looks like they dropped today along with the A02 — more on that in a sec.

Via Freshness:

“These A01 were released on last Thursday, April 5th, which were spotted in Japan by us. It seems to be limited edition sneakers for Japanese market only. Pile-like materials were used for the upper, which comes in vivid colorways of blue, pink, and green. Photos by AKI.”
