Recognised for its unparalleled comfort and support, the New Balance 580 now receives a GORE-TEX update across two moody colourways.
Debuted in Japan back in ‘96, the 580 silhouette has proved its longevity through a timeless retro design and exemplary performance tech. In fact, the model has had a pretty strong year, hosting dynamic collaborations with big dogs like COMME des GARÇONS HOMME, size?, and more recently, Levi’s. How do you go about improving a model that’s already considered a goat? Ensure it can withstand the relentless winter season – New Balance would suggest. Arriving in two muted palettes of ‘Black Magnet’ and ‘Kombu Green’, the offerings are just as autumn-coded physically, as they are visually. Let’s take a closer look…
Boasting a tonal display of muted hues across both kicks, the GORE-TEX-infused suede and mesh upper are ready to tackle the worst of weather. As well as the the waterproof refashioning, subtle updates such as a lower collar and streamlined toe box keep things refreshingly contemporary. Presenting a dynamic combination of a rollbar midsole and black Vibram outer, you can take full confidence in each step. No slip-ups round ‘ere! As with every offering from the Boston-based powerhouse, ABZORB cushioning guarantees unparalleled support, wherever the path may lead.
