Early images of a Stone Island x New Balance 574 Legacy seem to be a part of a wider collaboration between both brands.
What came as a shock to many hardcore sneakerheads, the rise of New Balance in the “hype” sneaker world has been a breath of fresh air for those tired of the same silhouettes from brands like Nike or adidas. Timely collaborations with Teddy Santis’ Aime Leon Dore, Joe Freshgoods, Salehe Bembury, and Stone Island have helped boost their prominence, however, Stone Island x New Balance isn’t stopping anytime soon. Now, we’ve got confirmation that a Stone Island x New Balance Football capsule is headed our way.
Earlier in the year, photos of a Stone Island x New Balance Football Kit were teased alongside a semi-hidden pair of sneakers (a Stone Island x New Balance 574 Legacy) thanks to UK rapper Dave. The kits follow the camo theme used in Stone Island’s latest post, coming dressed in the militaristic shade and graphic with co-branded logos taking over the front half of the uniform. As for the sneakers, we don’t have a full detailed look but the color palette seems to be based on the uniform as well as the iconic former-Japan exclusive New Balance 1300 “Steel Blue” (which was also utilized on the duo's recent RC Elite V2 collab). Stone Island’s logo appears on the tongue while tonal greens, blues, and whites appear throughout the rest of the upper. Underfoot, a white midsole gets paired with a black rubber outsole and completes the design.
The Stone Island x New Balance Football Capsule is set to release on November 21st exclusively through Stone Island online and in-store while a mainland China release is set for November 22nd. Included in this is the Football Kit and Stone Island x New Balance Furon V7 Cleat. The collaborative New Balance 574 Legacy will release on January 5th, 2023. As of this writing, sizing and pricing info is TBA. Keep it locked to our Twitter and the Sole Retriever mobile app to stay updated on release info for this Stone Island x NB collaboration and more in the sneaker and streetwear world.
