“Coming together with SneakersNStuff on this concept, it was important that we hit both of our styles.”
East coast streetwear afficionados recognize Aaron LaCrate as an OG, a longtime contributor to the scene whose Milkcrate Athletics label has been going strong for parts of three decades. LaCrate joined Sweeden’s SneakersNStuff for their fifth collaboration with New Balance and the result is a couple of pairs ranging from traditional to Easter egg-colorful. The SNS x Milkcrate Athletics x New Balance 577s bring you one each of the classic NB grey suede and one in a range of springy pastels, both of which stray from the classic formula to place perforated leather in the spots we’d typically expect mesh. Click thorugh to see both of them in detail along with a video showcasing the project, and grab yours straight from SNS in Stockholm and Malmo tomorrow with online availability to follow on Monday.
