We recently gave some preview images of the upcoming release of this PHANTACi x New Balance MT580, which will release to commemorate the upcoming Green Hornet film. The color references are obvious to the masked Hornet, as there are green hits on the midsole rollbar, the outsole, lace, tongue, and lining--not to mention the mask that adorns the laces. A hit of pink appears on the tongue, and the rest is a collection of varied black materials, including patent on the panel above the midsole, perforated leather on the toebox and collar, and patterened letter on the midfoot. The owner of Taiwan's PHANTACi boutique, Jay Chou, stars as Kato, and here we see an example of some direct input on a sneaker from an actor with some streetwear knowledge.
