Back on my blueshit again.
There’s no way possible for me to pass over a well done shoe when blue is the main hue. Love at first sight occurred when it came to the MT580 from New Balance’s Elite Edition ‘Racing Collection.’ The pack consists of three pairs – the 1600 and 999 models, not pictured – constructed using colors associated with iconic racing combos seen on cars and tracks throughout the sport’s history.
While I may know next to nothing about motorsports, I can spot a dope shoe on sight. My attention’s been focused on the bold colors and rich materials on the ‘Racing’ 580 for a few weeks. The upper’s wrapped in mesh and very supple suede, then trimmed in black and yellow making for an all around strong look.
And, there’s just that royal shade of blue so rich and full of color it looks like they smushed a bunch of blue Crayolas then carefully smeared them across the upper. So pretty that it makes me want to leave these sitting unworn for another day or two just so I can marvel at them.
The full ‘Racing Collection’ is available now at New Balance and definitely worthy of the patronage. Give thanks to Sweet Siren Aisha and friends at NB for holding me down with a pair.
