Editor’s Notes: Hanon and New Balance’s latest collaboration pulls from several sources of inspiration. Those include the retailer’s close partnership with the New England brand, New Balance’s legendary Flimby shoe factory, and Hanon’s “Chosen Few” New Balance M1500 collaboration. As Hanon puts it, the retailer wanted its 577 to “have the look and feel of a back catalogue shoe.” This stems from Hanon’s history of stocking the 577, 576, and 574 in its early days as a retailer.
The sneaker is set to drop on September 20 via a raffle on Hanon’s official site. The raffle ends Friday September 20 at 12 BST. Take a look at the sneaker above and join the raffle below.
