Capsule X New Balance Mt580 (Tux)
UPDATE: Missed the drop date on these Canadian-killers? Don't stress, Sneaker Politics got you covered, commencing tomorrow August 23.
Toronto sneaker retailers Capsule are unashamedly embracing their country's national gaudy outfit – the Canadian tuxedo. Do you know where the term comes from? Blame/thank Bing Crosby, it's kinda ironic actually, read up on the legend here. Capsule go the whole hog here too, decking out the MT580 upper in blue denim with a red denim N, denim style patterned laces, darker denim on the tongue and heel, and a stitched leather tongue tag – clearly inspired by the tag on the back of your jeans. Normal service is sorta resumed down below, with a white midsole bedded on some gum outsole lovin'. Look for these exclusively at Capsule on August 9.
