Though typically occupied with the 1-of-1, Singapore’s renowned customizer Mr. Sabotage and his imprint SBTG are now officially collaborating with New Balance and retailer Limited Edt to bring bespoke spirit to both the 327 silhouette and the 900 sandal.
The first of its kind for Boston’s New Balance, the capsule collection comments on Singapore’s duality as both a sprawling urban city and a tropical island getaway. As such, the 327 is literally split down the middle with both aesthetics, summarizing the overall themes solely through visuals. Lateral sides are relatively ordinary yet tinged with the militaristic as olive suede adorns the overlays while black nylon outfits underneath. Opposite, a green variation dresses the base, printed over top with “Urban Island” text as well as pineapples on one foot and leopard-styled camouflaged on the other. Moreover, the “Urban Islander” moniker is used once again atop the tongue as well as the insole’s special co-branded graphic.
In departure, the 900 Sandal seems more vacation friendly by design as the tropical motifs take further foothold along the offering’s upper. Pineapples and ornate text are carried over from the aforementioned complement, placed atop a green-tinged construction whose BOA lacing system takes up a good majority of the real estate. Elsewhere, tanned webbing wraps overhead and behind along the heel, the latter further stamped with the pack’s “Urban Islander” branding.
