While Streething was at the recent New Balance Sample Showcase at Limited Edt Vault one of the many pairs which they caught some pictures of were these, the New Balance 575 Pony Hair.
The design on the NB 575 Pony Hair features an upper using a combo of white leather and white patent leather with light brown pony hair included onto certain panels throughout the upper. We have seen materials of such used in the past on sneakers, largely from Nike, and in my opinion some of them were just straight out obnoxious. The New Balance 575 shown here however i think gets it done nicely.
At this time there is no expected release date seeing as how they are just a pair of samples for now but if New Balance does follow through with the production on the sneakers they should be dropping when the Fall 2009 lineup hits the shelves.
