Highsnobiety Reveal New Balance 577 CollaborationRelease: 4 September 2019
SONRA's collaboration with Budapester and DHL hasn't even dropped yet, but Hikmet Sugoer is already back with another collaborative endeavour, designing a special math-inspired New Balance 577 for Highsnobiety.
A nod to the prime number that is 577, the kicks are dubbed the 'Ulam Spiral' as a tribute to the random, graphical visualisation of prime numbers that goes by the same name. According to Sugoer and HS, the colourway itself takes cues from Sugoer's past NB colabs with the pink representing the sum of all numbers while the blue and grey represent the smallest prime number (2) and the connection between all primes, respectively. Naturally, HS's logo graces the custom insoles and lace jewels while stark white midsoles and gum rubber outsoles complete the package.
Expect the UK-made drop online this Wednesday, September 4, at 3pm CEST for $180.
