New Balance’s M670 has been used in a nice collaborative effort with Hanon Shop out of Scotland to create two new pairs of kicks based around Ventile fabric, a durable all-weather cotton. The designs of the two M670s are based off of the RAF Tornado and Spitfire, two famous World War II era planes, and the Ventile Fabric itself was used in fighter pilot suits from that time as well. Both colorways are undoubtedly clean, and should find more than a few fans of their good design and interesting material choice. Ventile Fabric isn’t necessarily the flashiest of materials, but it has a legacy of sturdy, reliable wear, and definitely gives these shoes a good look. As they dropped in primarily European and Australian locations on the 6th, Americans might have a hard time finding these kicks; a shame, as their solid colorways and classic looks definitely create a great collaborative project.
