For the third year in a row, X-Girl and New Balance come together on a collaborative release. Back in 2009, X-Girl, the female fashion sub-brand owned by Japanese streetwear label X-Large, teamed up with New Balance on a M850 and a M996, and in 2010 they worked on a H754. They must of taken a liking to the hiking-hybrid last year cause they’re using it again this year. The 2011 version of the X-Girl x New Balance H574 revolves around the theme of lightning, featuring a black and white lightning-striped upper with a pink lightning bolt on the tongue tag. The sneakers also include grey eyelets, a white midsole and a black outsole, and they come with three sets of laces (white, pink, volt).
The X-Girl x New Balance H574 is scheduled to release on April 16th, 2011 through select overseas retailers.
