Parisian boutique colette joins New Balance in celebration of the 20th anniversary of the MRT580 model. One of New Balance's most sought after silhouettes, the MRT580 was originally designed as a trail runner, however the style quickly became a favourite for in-the-know city dwellers. I have always regarded the 580's as one of the most interesting New Balance's and remember the days when they were the odd looking chunky runners that seemed to be available only in Japan. In the years since the model has gained more widespread recognition with collaborations with wings + horns & Capsule.
The two-piece collection consists of the original MRT580 as well as the recently introduced 'Deconstructed' version and feature a bright blue and grey colourway which are inverted on each respective model. Available from colette on June 25th.
