Victim x New Balance x Mita Sneakers CM670

Posted by samplekickz on 28 April, 2007


Japanese apparel brand Victim and Japanese sneaker store Mita are set to release two new colorways of the New Balance CM670. Although the most liberal colorways usually emanate within New Balance Japan, these CM670’s are an appeal to more traditional New Balance fans.

NB “Vol 1″ comic shoes

Posted by samplekickz on 15 March, 2007


We saw some pics of these floating ’round prior to the trade show season back in Feb. Thanks to Sneaker Freaker we now have a closer, far more detailed look. The graphics on this “Vol. 1” Comic shoe are striking enough. The real trick is the material- a substance called tyvek which looks and feels like paper. Although durable enough to be used in clothing manufacture, I thought this stuff was only suitable for disposable garments. That’s another Whammy for me. Check the tyvek website to find out what makes it so special. “Vol 1″ eh? Like all good comic adventures, this concept might be “to be continued…”. Check SF at the link above for the full story.

A not-so hungry dragon…

Posted by samplekickz on 13 March, 2007


Speaking of the Hungry Dragons and NB’s plans for the US, Streething brings news of this upcoming US 574 general release.

What you are looking at ARE NOT the New Balance 574 “Hungry Dragon”. These are general release New Balance 574 with similar oiled leather and stitch details to fullfil the US/Japan market.

The main differences between these and the Hong Kong limited release are the colours, the size of the production runs and the lack of special individually numbered tongue tags. On the up side, the NB lettering on the heel tab appears in Chinese charecters. Out mid March, but already @ Leftfoot Singapore.

New Balance “Classic Cars” Pack

Posted by samplekickz on 19 January, 2007


New Balance always takes a different approach from the other sneaker companies. It’s usually more subtle and less flashy.

The new pack that dropped now is the New Balance “Classic Cars” Pack. It features three models that are each inspired by a classic car: Ferrari Testarossa, Porsche Carrera and Triumph Herald. The sneakers have nice premium leathers and other great features. Have a close look and you see the difference on these.
