We'll make this one quick so that you have enough time to read the full story in Sneaker Freaker and on their website. A few weeks back we previewed a special Beinghunted NB 576. We received a lot of inquries/pre-orders for this model which many thought to be (yet another) collaboration.
Here is some background information. The shoe is actually a one-off, produced for Beinghunted after a visit to their factory in Flimby, UK. NB had invited six people to take a closer look at sneaker production and in the end offered all of them the chance to put together their own colorways. One had to choose between the 576 or the 1500 and... literally hundreds of materials. All of this had to happen within a strict time-limit of one hour! If that sounds demanding, imagine this without any means to visualize what the complete shoe would look like (no computers...).
Sure enough all six of us flipped and only managed to get something proper assembled with the helping hands of the NB professionals. A big THANKS to them for giving us this opportunity and to Solebox for the photographs. Believe us, it was a hassle to take these, since everyone was eager to take his pair(s) to the streets... And, no, you don't have to like them, we have to, and all of us do!
Along with the Kitsuné compilation called "X", Kitsuné and colette go in partnership with New Balance to produce a new version of the famous model 576.
A limited edition of 100 pairs, signed at the point of the sword by a Z...

More heat from Crooked Tongues, Solebox and New Balance!
Extremely limited (how does 50 pairs sound?) and only available at the Bread & Butter pre-party in Berlin on 21.01.2005 - this is the latest Crooked Tongues collaboration with New Balance - and it's hot! Influenced by the colours of the Crooked Tongues site, featuring gum soles usually reserved only for the Japanese market, they come with 2 pairs of laces and sequentially and individually numbered sterling silver tags.
All profits go to Cancer Research and availability will be first come first served, so make sure you turn up early and bring your wallet!
So, do you guys actually wear these shoes, or just look at them?
The ones with the tan alligator skin, mahogany leather, platinum tongue, and iridescent gold are the most god awful, heinous shoes I've ever seen. I think someone's playing a joke on you guys, seeing how far they can go and still take your money.
