Highsnobette ‘Siempre Amor’ New Balance US 574

29 November 2011, 03.01 | Posted in Design, Fashion, Sneakers | 2 comments »

Highsnobette Siempre -amor NB US574  (4)

As an ode to our shared admiration of a good pair of sneakers when I was  invited by New Balance to design our own US 574,  the first goal was to  keep things classic. Having my  share of super-color-filled kicks I really wanted to make something in burgundy, which was not available but then there was that grey. A grey pair of New Balance was at  some point  part of many college guys wardrobes  along with cargo shorts (Abercrombie if you had it like that), a t-shirt and  a fitted baseball cap with the tongue curved  down ( sound familiar?) . Anyway these lovelies can be seen as slightly menswear inspired with a pop of neon, the words “siempre amor” (love always) embroidered on the heel as a reminder that  as a motivation, a guiding force in anything in life  love always wins… More angles on the flip. Design your own here.
