The SMU project is back again, and this time they are teaming up with http://newbalance.com/”>New Balance to produce an exclusive pair of sneakers. http://stussy.jp/”>Stussy, http://real.madhectic.com/hectic/”>HECTIC and http://undftd.jp/”>UNDEFEATED all play an integral part in the Japanese street scene, and this latest item pays homage to the 80’s archive runners from New Balance. The SMU took two iconic sneakers, the 555 and 996, and combined them to create this unique SMU CM996. These shoes utilize the best of both worlds: the 996 styling and functionality detailed with the 555 colorway and materials. Furthermore, the off-white midsoles give an impression of a deadstock sneaker. These sneakers will be available beginning this Saturday, November 19th, at select retailers in Japan, including Stussy Japan Chapters, HECTIC stores and UNDEFEATED stores.
