Hypebeast kicked off a killer year collaborating with the biggest brands and has yet to let the foot up off the gas. The world renown publication has struck up an important collaboration with New Balance giving birth to the "Exploration pack".
The sneakers protagonist of this very limited release are two NB 580’s, one dubbed “Earth” that represents earth after doomsday. A greenish grey tone-colored upper representing what little traces of humanity may remain; destroyed buildings and wreckage askew. Urban exploration has made a huge comeback in recent years, this sneaker appeals to the voyeuristic side of that. Trying to find peace and explanations on humanity’s downfall.
The other sneaker, also a 580 but on a different iteration of the model, the Re-Engineered 580, dubbed “Space”, comes in darker color blocking with the all-famous laser-cut paneling to make this a lightweight, durable sneaker.
After the exclusive launch at Hypebeast, the global release of the New Balance x Hypebeast MRT580 "Exploration pack" is set to hit selected New Balance retailers around the globe on Saturday, August 13th, such as Kosmos.
