New Balance has been one of this years go-to brand’s for sneaker collaborations, and from what we’ve previewed so far, New Balance collaborations will be just as popular in 2011. One of the brand’s the footwear company teamed up with for the new year is Highs & Lows, a boutique located in Perth, Australia. Focusing on the 577 silhouette, the shop created the “Night & Day” Pack, a two-sneaker pack stylized to accommodate the beach-side strolls, mid-day cookouts and streetside sundowners that all take place under the blue skies and golden sun of Perth, Australia.
Appearing on one of the 7 covers of Sneaker Freaker‘s 20th issue is the “Day” sneaker, defined by it’s colorful blue and white color scheme laid out on a suede and mesh constructed upper. The “Night” pair is obviously the complete opposite, with a darker, more stealthy look featuring black leather and nubuck throughout the base, white perforated leather on the toebox and ankle, and a faint speckle pattern on the midsole to acknowledge the moon and stars that fill the night sky. The theme of each shoe is also carried out on the insoles, with a blazin’ hot sun appearing on the “Day” model and a moon on the “Night” model.
Check out the detailed photos of both sneakers below and watch for the Highs & Lows x New Balance 577 “Night & Day” Pack to release in April 2011.
