The Herschel Supply Co. x New Balance capsule is one that the general public still has to wait a little bit for, as the six sneaker set won’t hit retail till February 2nd. A select few have laid their eyes on the sneakers though, as just last night the two teams held a private event celebrating the New Balance H710 and the New Balance 420 included in the the pack. Raekwon of Wu-Tang fame was also in building-the appearance marking his second stop at a New Balance event in the last half year.

This weekend West NYC will officially join the short list of American shops to have cranked out a special pair of the New Balance MT580, a hiker sort of silhouette that has long had a bit more shine in the Asian markets. We can guarantee those days are pretty much over, with their ‘Alpine Guide’ edition very much meeting the bar set by the likes of Burn Rubber on the same silhouette. Last night the sneaker spot held an invite-only event at their Manhattan locale, with a select number of pairs available to purchase, a sick DJ set by Aaron LaCrate, and an awesome late night performance from Raekwon of Wu-Tang fame. Click through with us to get a photo recap of the West NYC x New Balance MT580 in-store and keep in mind that the public release will go down tomorrow, September 22nd, with a few more pairs available for phone order the following Monday. Also, check back with Sneaker News for word on which other spots will be carrying this awesome collab.

“We took pride in the sneaker game because we grew up under the OGs that . . . put us on to what was fresh.”

Few things can match New Balance’s identity of pure ‘classic’ style, but this latest odd coupling makes total sense when you hear the first bars of Criminology and find yourself instantly transported back in time to 1995. Wu-Tang Clan OG Raekwon the Chef did some of his very best work on the ‘Purple Tape’ that guest starred self-proclaimed ‘Wally King’ Ghostface Killah, and two years after Cuban Linx Pt. 2, he’s linking up with New Balance and DJ Mars on a retrospective on the last two decades plus of sneakers and streetwear as part of Mars’ ‘History of Mixtapes’ project. NB is one of those brands that has endured Raekwon’s entire reign and you can see his thoughts on their timeless runners by clicking on the jump below to watch the full video.
