Last year, Wings+Horns hooked up with New Balance for one of the year's best collaborations. Like most hyped products, the shoes quickly sold out leaving many without any hope of owning a pair.
Unless you come to terms with paying secondary market prices, there's realistically no way you're going to get a pair at retail. But New Balance is giving fans of the collab a second chance. Sort of. New Balance's latest MRT580BV is nearly identical to the Wings+Horns release, minus the hype and certainly not as limited. With some minor changes in color blocking and material choices, the shoe doesn't look quite as lux as its Wings+Horns counterpart, but It's a drop that many New Balance fans will surely appreciate and one of the better general releases of the year. Retailing at $125, expect these 580s to be on the feet of many sneakerheads this season. If you plan on copping, Packer Shoes currently has a full size run right now.
