Here's an exclusive look at a new project that debuted in Sneaker Freaker 20! Perth's finest at Highs & Lows have buttered up after their recent Reebok GL6000 collab to produce this stunning twin pack of New Balance sneakers. Dubbed 'Night & Day', the concept sees two different shoes created and as you'd expect, there's a bright sunny suede pair for daylight duty and a more rugged version designed to come out under the cover of dark. Apparently these will be released in April so there's plenty of time to organise your hook ups and bank balance!
We asked the HAL crew for a few words on the project and this is part of what they sent us!
"We wanted to create a shoe that’d accommodate the beach-side strolls, mid-day cookouts and streetside sundowners that all take place under our city’s blue skies and golden sun. When it came to the NIGHT shoe, we agreed that the uncertainty of the evening called for a more stealthy approach and a little more solidarity in the materials. Therefore, the Night shoe became a black fullgrain leather and raw nubuck assassin with a breathable perforated toebox, 3M highlights and a little speckle thrown on the white sole to acknowledge the moon and stars that watch our every move after dark."
