Throughout 2016, New Balance has recognized the 20th anniversary of the MT580 silhouette, and the ongoing celebration culminates with the MT580XY. The model is a reissue of the sneaker that started off as a trail-running shoe but went on to become a Japanese streetwear cult favorite and a canvas for various collaborations. It's built with a combination of mesh and nubuck, packed with the original Rollbar and Abzorb technologies. To commemorate the revival of the original MT580, New Balance borrows the color scheme from the sought after M1300JP model to create the MT580XY. Limited to just 580 pairs and releasing as an Asia-Pacific region exclusive, the New Balance MT580XY launches December 22nd through select retailers.
