New Balance 420 is waiting for you

Jan 29th 2015 at 5:48 PM

This week has been an interesting one in the world of luxury sneaker copycats, as Karl Lagerfeld’s New Balance lawsuit might have thrown a wrench in the game. Apparently not slowing down is Hender Scheme, whose premium leather remix of the Air Jordan 4 just surfaced. If you’re unfamiliar, the Ryo Kashiwazaki run brand has been at this for a minute, rebuilding silhouettes like the Nike Air Force 1 High, the adidas Micropacer, the new balance 420 red, and more. Earlier last month New Balance revealed that it would be releasing its new balance 420 sale in a number of new camouflage styles, six to be exact, all of which strayed away from that woodland theme that’s become so ubiquitous over the past couple of years in lieu of a digital camo look (sounds familiar after that Air Jordan 1 “Digi-Camo” sample, right?) Today we get a look at perhaps the most traditional hue that features an olive green suede while a grey base is aided by tan and green and vibrant hunting orange hits the branding and back heel. New Balance is the latest sneaker company to bite back against luxury brands ripping off its designs. According to TMZ, the brand is suing German fashion lord Karl Lagerfeld over his liberal usage of the NB aesthetic, specifically the side letter hit, on a $360 pair of Lagerfeld trainers. The turn of events suggests that sneaker companies aren’t exactly appreciative of the sort of high fashion rip approach that’s been rampant lately in the luxury sneaker world (Common Projects, Givenchy, and Céline are all guilty of this as well). You have to also wonder whether or not New Balance will be chasing down the likes of Hender Scheme, who have a sneaker that’s basically just a new balance 420 mens without the logo. The new balance 420 review isn’t made available in its USA build too terribly often. Actually, it’s sort of always available with that construction thanks to the brand’s deep customizable options available online, but it’s not too often that the retail pairs come from the Massachusetts factories. Filling in the void is this new pair, which has a soft blue suede going on along with some orange for an almost Knickerbocker vibe. The New Balance 574 is waiting for you after the break with more images, so get a load of those and then head to Packer Shoes. All the June, 2015 sneaker release dates that are fit to print are waiting for you right here. While the month’s calendar has yet to fully take shape, we’ve already got over 50 pairs documented for you to add to your own personal notes. The What the new balance 420 navy from Nike Basketball is indeed missing, but expect that shoe to pop back up on the calendar any day now. Also, look for the group as a whole to get more diverse once release dates for upcoming collaboration projects from the likes of Asics, adidas, New Balance, and more begin to roll in.
