The rough-as-ruffage Nike SB Dunk High ‘Skunk’ earned a spot on the Sneaker News Top 30 of 2010 list with its outlandish inspiration, and while this latest New Balance collaboration lacks similar controversy, they’re definitely an early contender for 2011’s nappiest suede. Japanese streetwear brand Nonnative collaborated with the Boston-based brand to create this New Balance CM1500 ‘Coyote’, a runner whose look is anything but ‘ugly’. They’re pretty similar to the Timbo-inspired ‘Wheat’ colorway we see from time to time, but the extremely nappy suede signals right off the bat that these are a bit wilder than your average golden brown kicks. Check out more shots after the jump and call on your Japanese connects to be a part of the January 3rd launch at Tokishirazu and other select retailers.
