Their own stock sold sufficiently quickly that a little over two weeks after the launch of the Crooked Tongues x New Balance 1500s all but a few pairs have sold out.  Luckily for sneakerheads in the New York area, one of the city’s best boutiques has gotten a hold of their own run of pairs and will be releasing the Crooked 1500s this Saturday.  Formed in the Flimby Factory in England, these CT x NB 1500s stand out even during a year when we saw bolder colorways on this particular model thanks to their use of a bit of extra leather compared to the traditional balance of suede and mesh.  Click through so you can see both pairs in more detail and get ready for them to drop at West NYC tomorrow morning at 10am.

Crooked Tongues x New Balance 1500 – Factory Tour

Regular Sneaker News readers will see these images and get the distinct sense that, though they’re clearly new, we’ve seen something like this before.  That’s because the initial teaser images from the upcoming Crooked Tongues x New Balance 1500 depicted the UK-made kicks as mere stacks of their constituent parts, sculptures set to be made into ‘real’ art by one of Flimby’s finest.  Today, England’s sneaker e-tailing OGs are back with a look into the actual construction process for their NB 1500s, and both the materials and process by which they’re transformed into their distinctive shape look better than ever.  Click through to see more of this Saturday, October 15th release and let us know if you’ll work to get your hands on Crooked Tongues‘ New Balance 1500s.

Crooked Tongues x New Balance M1500

When you first gaze upon this latest New Balance collaboration, you might have the vague impression that you’ve seen them before, and yet, there haven’t been any new 1500s quite like this before.  That’s because the first time we saw the Crooked Tongues x New Balance M1500s, both pairs were laid out in their raw materials, unstitched and unassembled, vaguely reminiscent of the various Air Jordan sculptures that were circulating last year.  But those familiar with the 1500 could already see what those ‘instructions’ were pointing toward, these new pairs relatively heavy on both leather and contrasting colors from a model best known in its OG grey suede edition.  Have a closer look at a bunch of images after the jump and expect these at Crooked Tongues on October 15th with select distributors worldwide getting theirs in the following week.

Crooked Tongues x New Balance M1500 – Teaser

September 21st, 2011 by | 5 comments

crooked tongues new balance m1500 teaser 01 Crooked Tongues x New Balance M1500   Teaser

The well-respected and oft-poignant sneaker aggregate known as Crooked Tongues has teamed up with suede-and-mesh masters New Balance for a sick duet of New Balance M1500s. Going against the grain of typicall sneaker teasers and previews, Crooked Tongues has decided to show the entire shoe – in deconstructed form. Two colorways of the Crooked Tongues x New Balance M1500 will drop in mid-October – an Orange/Black/Grey variety and a Moss Green/Hunter green join; although we a get a complete look at a colorway on a sneaker model we are all familiar with, somehow the tension and anticipation mounts up. Check out both colorways below and stick with Sneaker News for more information as it develops.

Nike Air Max 90 Hyperfuse ‘Infrared’ – 2-A-Day Giveaway

September 16th, 2011 by | 2 comments

max90 comp 570x379 Nike Air Max 90 Hyperfuse Infrared   2 A Day Giveaway

Earlier this month, Sneaker News brought you perhaps our worst event recap story ever.  It’s not that the CrookedTongues BBQ 2011 wasn’t a dope event, in fact, quite to the contrary judging by the London retailer’s sterling reputation and one heckuva exclusive freebie.  But while the news that the Nike Air Max 90 Hyperfuse ‘Infrared’ was only for giveaways at the backyard bar-b-que might have made attendees feel quite special, it meant to the rest of the entire world that one of the all-time great silhouette/colorway combos would be unavailable to the general public for one of the most natural tech updates Nike Sportswear has created.

Well, for all the ‘half full’ and ‘silver lining’ folks out there, there is indeed a bright side to this sad story, and it comes in the form of a ’2-A-Day Giveway’ via Twitter.  All you’ve gotta do to enter is break out your personal best and snap a shot of them on your feet along with the #ctnswbbq2011 hashtag, or alternatively, post ‘em on the CT Facebook group page or on their site’s own ‘Today I’m Wearing’section.  Get creative with your submissions and send ‘em in along with your UK-converted shoe size between Monday the 19th and Friday the 23rd, and be sure to come back and post a comment to make everyone jealous if you’re lucky enough to secure the most exclusive pair of Infrareds ever.

Crooked Tongues BBQ 2011 x Nike Air Max 90 Hyperfuse ‘Infrared’

September 6th, 2011 by | 15 comments

Ranking right up there with Memorial and Independence Days, the first Monday in September is strongly associated with outdoor eatin’.  In celebration of Labor Day 2011, Crooked Tongues managed to secure a special exclusive sneaker for their bar-b-que, and fans of Nike Running will instantly be doubly crushed as they head back to work today and realize that the above pictured model will probably never be closer than these images.  The Nike Air Max 90 Hyperfuse ’Infrared’ isn’t exactly a CT-NSW collabo, but that the OG colorway from this iconic design could only be obtained by winning the contest held at the Crooked cookout is clear evidence that this was THE party of the weekend.  This teaser treatment is not all too dissimilar from the OG Varsity Blue colorup on the Air Max 1 Hyperfuse; would you have bought them both had they hit retail?  Click through to see more, leave a comment to let us know what you think and stick with Sneaker News for more from Nike Sportswear’s Hyperfuse collection.
