Catalan’s finest sneaker spot 24 Kilates has worked with all the heavy hitters in the Euro-sneaker game; New Balance, Asics, Reebok, they even showed up for the revival of Ellesse. They’re back at it with the New Balance team, opting for a more trail ready look this time with the New Balance 581. However, they’re not alone in this set of trail-inspired 581s, because Boston’s Bodega, Japan’s mita Sneakers, and South Korea’s Kasina will also join in – all pictured in this nice group shot. Each colorway features a distinct color profile unique to each store, so continue reading for another full group shot (but before you go, see if you can guess which colorway belongs to which store!). via mita.
mita – Grey with Grey outsole
24 Kilates – Green/Orange
Bodega – Blue/Teal/Purple
Kasina – Beige/Gum
No surprise that the Bodega joints are the best colorway. I'm going to try to get my hands on a pair of those definitely. Everything else has been down before and sort of lacks originality.
