The New Balance ML581 is poised for quite the coming out party, with a quartet of collabo models set to drop in conjunction with some of the top sneaker boutiques across the world. Of course New Balance’s in-house designers have been known to crank out some heat as well, so their two debut colorways of this hybridized model deserve some recognition of their own. Coming with speckled midsoles and a mixture of earth tones on the uppers, the looks reflect the sort of rugged activity the ML581 is built for with its covered lacing system and chunky outsole. Follow us after the jump to get a better look at both pairs and grab them now from Firmament.
