Taking its name from the side of Manhattan’s 72nd Street where you’ll find sneakers ranging from Nike Sportswear mainstays (and even the Air Yeezy 2) to rare New Balance specialties, West NYC has made its name among the New York sneakerhead scene. Now they get a chance to reach out to the world at large with a collaboration on the same silhouette that made household names out of brands ranging from Detroit’s Burn Rubber to Japan’s HECTIC. The West x New Balance MT580 should be an interesting flavor with a chocolate mint chip colorup plus purple and pink branding, but you’ll have to check back with Sneaker News to see the full design once it’s revealed. Let us know what you think of the color scheme and check back for more details including the release date.
