Solebox x Beinghunted x New Balance!!!

Picture 2

Here we have now finally some pictures of the Solebox x Beinghunted x New Balance collaboration. The series of sneakers coming out of this collaboration follow the theme of Great Outdoor. They used traditional, well known outdoor materials for the sneakers and I am loving the outcome. Checkered cotton, traditional mountain colors, fur like looking materials ... just great.

What is most striking about these sneakers is the personal touch to them.

"The third aspect that we took into account for the Solebox + Beinghunted collaboration was to incorporate an individual element that would directly refer to the members involved. For the military 575, Hikmet from Solebox personally picked the "Strichtarn" fabric, a camouflage used by the former East-German armed forces. This original camouflage fabric was bought in Berlin (East, formerly GDR) and then shipped over to the NB factory to be used on the shoes. For the civilan 575, Jörg from Beinhunted chose a Gingham-patterned fabric which is a common element in the Southern-German attire. Beinghunted's roots lie in Munichn and this is also where the fabric was bought. Both patterns provide for a clear distinction between the two fields the two shoes refer to."

Now here have a look at them...
