Following their “Dark Matter” Evo 4D with adidas, END is linking up with New Balance for a collaboration that avoids all mention of the holiday season. Rather, the two have opted to take a trip to Southeast Asia, their journey bringing them face-to-face with the “Rainbow Eucalyptus,” a namesake indigenous to the Philippines, Indonesia, and now this upcoming 1500.
Known for its vibrant bark, the inspiration gives way to a number of design choices. The pigskin suede at the tongue and toe cap, for example, mirror that of the eucalyptus itself as they dress in a floral pink and forested green, respectively. Adjacent, the mesh and leather framework contrasts in a neutral grey, its coloring only a jumping point for the aforementioned and the “N” logo that embroiders with even more pink. Then, to finish, the insole patterns as if the tree’s trunk, its various shades marked over by both END and NB logos.
Grab a detailed look here and expect END’s raffle to close on December 18th.
