HYPEBEAST x NEW BALANCE MRT 580 ‘EXPLORATION’ PACK
Last night, local retailer Sole Academy announced that they will be releasing the Hypebeast x New Balance MRT 580 ‘Exploration’ Pack. Part of the Boston-based company’s celebration of the 20-year old silhouette, Hypebeast also enters its second decade of influence on to street culture and uses both to tell their story. The collaboration embraces a new journey of exploration. Using the 580 and 580 Deconstructed and dubbing them ‘Earth’ an ‘Space’, the pack brings together quality storytelling on both ends of the spectrum.
The MRT 580 ‘Earth’ uses a hairy suede set against mesh, which covers nature’s growing tendencies over man-made structures. The midsole is tonal green to go with the green accents on the outsole, tongue tag and laces. The MRT 580 Deconstructed ‘Space’ goes with speckled black upper, connoting ‘space’. Black leather accents are found on the heel, tongue patch, and laces complement the updated upper.
Both pairs will be available today, August 13th, at Sole Academy BGC. beginning 12nn. The MRT 580 ‘Earth’ retails for Php 8,095 while the MRT 580 Deconstructed ‘Space’ retails for Php 8,795. Release starts at 12nn for Sole Academy members and open to the public beginning 2pm.
