In anticipation of this year’s European Championship in France, New Balance has enlisted some of the continent’s biggest players in the sneaker game to revamp its soccer-inspired EPIC-TR.
Boutique stores including Scotland’s Hanon, Barcelona’s 24 Kilates, Stockholm’s sneakersnstuff and Berlin’s Firmament were all signed up to design their own version of the silhouette. The EPIC-TR was conceived from NB’s EPIC soccer boot and these four new colorways have it looking tastier than ever.
Never too far away from any football-related goodness, our friends over at MUNDIAL magazine have also designed a bespoke issue that comes with each pair. The limited-edition mag tells the story of New Balance’s footballing heritage, while also providing insight into the care taken and quality materials used for the collab. The lookbook, which you can see above, sees staff from each boutique wander around their respective home cities.
The collection will launch on June 11 at each respective store, while a wider global release follows on June 25.
