Made in England and Flimby-produced, the shoes come in two colorways, both inspired by Crooked Tongues’ first New Balance collaboration back in 2004, a quartet of 576 models that included a black/orange and white/lime colorway. (So, no, Bay Area residents, these kicks aren’t inspired by the uniform colors of your Giants and A’s teams.) Composed of a combination of mesh, leather and nubuck, the premium quality of the materials are evident in the following images, while the continuing popularity of the model is a testament to the timeless appeal of the 1500’s design. Both models will be available starting October 15th on http://crookedtongues.com/” target=”_blank”>crookedtongues.com, and through select retailers the following week. Click through for more looks.
