New Balance continues to reach out to other brands known for their premium goods, extending some serious momentum accumulated over the past year-plus. The latest proof of NB’s strength as a team player comes from an Italian menswear label whose upscale rugged character is right at home on the most angular of the 1980s New Bal runners. The Stone Island x New Balance 577s utilize SI’s famed Raso Gommato rubberized cotton material alongside orange suede and white leather for two crisp and eye-catching designs. These are available now at the four Stone Island flagships along with select additional retailers, and you can see both pairs in detail below.
