Established in 1999, Japanese label BAL (formerly known as Balance Wear Design) inaugurated a different design origin to Tokyo’s urban fashion – the growing DJ culture.  The label also distinguished itself as one of few to leave the bustling alleyways of Harajuku and set up shop on the tranquil streets of Meguro (目黒) district, a neighborhood that is quickly becoming a trend-setting locale in Tokyo.

Set to release in late December, BAL recently collaborate with with Lakai Limited in designing a simple skate shoe that fits to its DJ culture design theme.  Based on the the popular Manchester Select line, the BAL exclusive will include the same vulcanized construction with shock absorbing tacky rubber in white and durable suede upper in black.  A custom designed graphic of fragmented collage is then sublimated onto the mid-section upper. Comes with 2 sets of matching laces and customized packaging, the Lakai Limited x BAL – Manchester Select Exclusive is currently available for pre-order on DEDUE chapter of ZOZOTOWN shopping network.
