Model: 878 “Grey Gull”
Key Features: END.’s take on the New Balance 878 is inspired by the seagulls that are synonymous with coastal Britain. Blue-grey leather with grey and black suede overlays represent the birds’ plumage, while pops of orange, yellow and red are a nod to the seagull’s distinctive beak. The ABZORB cushioning system provides a sturdy foundation and gives the project a decidedly bulky look.
Release Date: October 19
Price: €119 / $130
Buy: Exclusively available on END. Launches
Editor’s Notes: British retailer END. keeps things close to home for the theme of its latest New Balance collaboration, opting to give the 878 a seagull-inspired makeover. As mentioned above, the color-blocking is a nod to the birds that call coastal Britain their home. The END. x New Balance 878 “Grey Gull” drops today, October 19.
