The iconic Levi’s denim brand, which has served as a fashion staple in many closets for more than 150 years, has recently partnered up with popular sneaker brand New Balance. The collaboration aims not only to celebrate the 35 years since the first New Balance 1300 hit the retail market but also to bring together the unique followers and supporters of both brands.
With both brands having been found on the basis of solving a particular problem within the fashion industry at the time, it only made sense that these two history rich brands partner up. Levi’s focused on providing the market with strong and long lasting clothing through the form of denim jeans and New Balance aimed to produce insoles that were not only comfortable but stylish too. Keeping in mind the rich histories of both brands, one can only imagine what the final product might feel like.
The kicks feature a construction made specifically from a blend of Levi’s iconic black patch coloured suede and the White Oak XX52 denim. Including the combination of denim materials, the sneakers also incorporate a range of vibrant orange tones. Lastly finishing touches include White Oak woven labels located on both the tongues of the shoes as well as a unique hashtag and “Levi’s for feet” symbol.
Should you want to try your luck in copping this sneaker, it will be available on 26 March at Shelflife, X-trend Sandton City as well as New Balance Canal Walk.
