Each year, the Asia Pacific division of New Balance works on a collaboration project and this year they have enlisted the talents of Singapore's leading sneaker boutique, Leftfoot and South East Asian urban lifestyle online magazine, Streething. The theme for 2011 is the Past, Present and Future, taking the rich running heritage of the brand over three unique footwear.
The Past model was conceived by Streething taking influence from the original 574 colorway in gray and navy tones. However the shoes were given a slight twist by making them in a mid cut silhouette. The Present is represented by Leftfoot in the green and brown H574J. Designed to translate the concept of culture chameleons, the contemporary styling shows the versatility of the footwear suited for today's chameleon like society. The last HS77 model looks into the future by showcasing the sonic welding technology for a seamless streamlined aesthetic along with lightweight materials.
All of these sneakers will be available on Saturday, October 15th at Leftfoot stores in Singapore and select New Balance accounts in Asia region. Also there are only 600 pairs of each design is produced which does not leave much for each retailer.
