This weekend we’ll be releasing the final in the Limited Edition New Balance 577 trilogy; a full 4 years after we had the last installment and 6 years since it’s inception. Each shoe shared it’s inspiration with one of Limited Edition’s stores, we’ll let them explain it for you…
Following our first two New Balance collaboration sneakers in 2008 and 2010, We are proud to present the next and final chapter of our made in England 577 series – The Limited Edt Queensway M577LEV. It is the grand finale to a trilogy that has spanned over 6 years. The first started with design inspiration from our original “Vault” concept store at Singapore’s busy Orchard Road shopping district, the next one was based on our Chamber concept store at Marina Bay Sands. To end the project, we have taken things back to our roots and have gone full circle by returning to our Queensway Shopping Centre boutique, a location that is known as the go-to place for sporting goods in Singapore and where we first set up shop.
Like our previous editions, the Limited Edt Vault M577LEV is made in New Balance’s legendary Flimby factory, located in Cumbria, England, where craftsmanship and quality takes precedence. The shoe features only the finest premium materials. The upper contains a mix of nubuck leathers and 3M reflective panels. The bold mix of royal blue and flash orange colour is from Limited Edt Queensway’s interior decor and sports-inspired logo.
Translating their Queensway store onto the 577 means swathes of royal blue nubuck offset with bright orange and grey accents. This colourway is pretty synonymous with New York and it’s something that you don’t often see worked onto New Balance.
Another common theme shared amongst all three 577s is a black midsole, again something that isn’t commonly seen. For this version Limited Edition (LE) have also decided to do away with the two-piece N normally seen on the 577, instead implementing a single piece normally reserved for the 990 and some 576s. This gives the recognisable upper a much more sleek look, especially given the branding’s tonal treatment.
The colour blocking chosen by the LE crew gives this model a completely different look than any other 577 we’ve seen. By moving the focus away from the branding and instead the heel panel and forefoot accents by using reflective grey material it really accentuates the wedge shape that has proved so timeless.
Like the previous two these are once again made in England using the finest materials and built to the same high expectations as any other product coming out of the Cumbria factory. Each pairs comes with commemorative hangtag and a choice of orange, blue or grey shoelaces.
The New Balance 577 by Limited Edition will release this Saturday October 25. As always we will have in-store release at 10am and any remaining pairs will go online HERE at 12-midday. Don’t miss out!!
