Ready to Drop 600 Euros on These Rifare Co for Starcow New Balance 992 Customs?
Starcow have called upon the unique services of Rifare Co to produce a small batch of custom New Balance 992s that are available now exclusively from the Parisian boutique. Rifare have bonded a Vibram RollinGait Sole (RGS) onto the plush 992 uppers, and that’s not all: they’ve added a tabi split toe to cap off these crazy customs!
The base model is the New Balance 992 in simple black suede and mesh with signature grey accents. There’s also a premium lace flip – to be fair, the stock pair is already pretty primo – with a densely woven off-white option. However, the real action is underfoot. The Vibram RGS has been omnipresent in the high end sneaker world for its chunky profile and proven ergonomics. Given the generous proportions of the 992, it’s a good fit here. Rifare, who hail from Taiwan, finish off the customs with their signature split toe and hand-stitched toe bumper, which is made from natural veg-tan leather to match the added heel flap.
What’s the cost of being a unique sneaker head? According to Starcow and Rifare, it’s 600 Euros (that's about $677). The customs are available now exclusively from Starcow and sizes are already selling out. Pairs are limited to one per customer.
