Taking a page from mita sneakers’ playbook, New Balance is in preparation to launch the M580 Gore-Tex for 2011, the New Balance MTG580B Gore-Tex. Unlike previous renditions, virtually all from some sort of collaborations, there is no pretex with MTG580B Gore-Tex. Instead, its a simple black tonal creation with perforated leather and rip-stop nylon upper. A off-white midsole encapsulates all the support elements, and a gum rubber outsole provides an assuring grip on any surfaces. Of course, it goes without saying, sandwiched in-between the layers of leather and nylon upper is the everlasting Gore-Tex membrane – an ideal accessory to have in these harsh weathers. The New Balance MTG580B Gore-Tex will be available at select New Balance retailers toward the end of this month.
