Created by Cuban refugee and political cartoonist Antonio Prohias, at the height of the Cold War. His cartoon of 2 dueling crows, Spy vs.Spy, make light of the absurd antics and policies from both sides of the conflict, such as MAD – Mutually Assured Destruction, or NUTS – Nuclear Utilization Target Selection. Since then, the cartoon has won a place in the American culture.
After the release of the Bodega x PUMA Spy II High collaboration last month. New Balance Japan is bring out their version of the Spy vs. Spy. Based on the MT580 model, the Spy vs. Spy Pack will consist of 2 pairs: white overlays on black mid-sole (WK) and black overlays on white mid-sole (KW). While the white (WK) version will include a red dynamite on the heel tab. The black (KW) will feature red bomb. 3 key technologies were also added to the MT580J. Mid-sole made from ENCAP polyurethane technology intermixed with C-CAP EVA material provide a durable yet lightweight foundation. ROLLBAR, made of graphite, further give the MT580J added lateral support. Both sneakers will be release by Tokyo’s mita-sneaker on April 3rd.
