Not often are we treated with a collaboration involving a trifecta of influential institutions. Invincible, one of Asia’s most prominent boutiques, is raising the bar with its latest project with New Balance and Japan’s N.HOOLYWOOD, once again focusing on the statement grey hue of the footwear brand and adding their signature elements.
Dubbed the “Grey Swan”, this New Balance 1906R brings back the hairy suede exteriors seen in previous New Balance collaborations such as the 2002R, 996, and 574, while the outward text hits at the toe-box call on N.HOOLYWOOD’s utilitarian aesthetic. Grey is indeed the focus as there are five different materials graced onto the layers and panels, shaded in the neutral hue; pops of a bright, hazardous orange appears view the heel pull-tab and forefoot outsole. Finally, a cream off-white wraps the medial and lateral walls of the outsole, adding to that aged look.
Currently, a raffle is now live directly on Invincible (check the link below), with entries accepted through October 5th (winners to be notified on October 8th).
In other news, the ALD 550 releases are coming soon as part of the brand’s FW22 collection.
