New Balance x Sportie LA/Alife/Concepts

While we presented to you already while back the New Balance x Sportie LA 575, we show you today the 576′s that New Balance did with two other stores. They got together with Alife on a sneaker with an all over silver reflective upper and a clear sole. With Concepts Boston they mixed patent leather with reflective detailing nubuck toebox and heel, suede vamp, coupled with a clear and rubber outer sole. Very fresh for the coming summer months. The sneakers were created by the Superteam 33 people at New Balance. We can for sure expect many more interesint projects from them. Via Random Ramblings.
***Update via New Balance: New Balance did work with ALIFE on the collaboration project which was originally planned as a three shoe collection along with Sportie LA and Concepts at the Tannery in Boston. Due to reflective materials used in the ALIFE project and New Balance’s production methods, we were unable to produce the shoes as it was designed. So, the project will not be launched as planned. New Balance is eager to bring this collaboration to life, and the two brands are in discussions for an alternate project, but no date has been set for the release. Please Stay tuned!***
