New Balance and Taiwanese streetwear brand Invincible are set to release a collaboration that incorporates the time-tested 574 silhouette with a unique pairing of materials on each sneaker.
Adhering to a "The Old Is New" mantra, the asymmetrical pair of sneakers features different fabrics and materials throughout that give the pair a "Ying and Yang" feel. Mismatched fabrics throughout the upper, toe box, and lateral/medial sides include long-haired suede, genuine leather, and nubuck.
The 574 silhouette features those materials in shades of indigo and deep navy blue. The overall color palette references a previous collaboration between the two brands that released in 2013—the 1400 model hosted the efforts of the streetwear brand and New England sneaker company that time and featured a similar theme in terms of the colorway. The 574 is finished off with co-branded insoles and a faded "N" logo on the lateral side of the sneaker.
The launch of the collaboration features a special in-store exhibit to celebrate and further demonstrate the themes of "A Look Back in Time" and 'Timeless Classic." Check out below for some detailed images of the store setup and sneakers.
The Invincible x New Balance 574 is set to hit stores this Saturday, July 21 for a retail price tag of NT$3,250 (Roughly $106 USD) at the physical location of the store in Taiwan. The sneaker will be available for a wider release via New Balance starting on July 28.
