UPDATE: We've just got some new shots of this 'Oreo' New Balance 580 Reengineered in the wild. The OG runner is one half of the 'Knit Pack' and and features a splattered colourway that sets it apart from virtually every 580 on the market. If you're liking what you're seeing, head over to Titolo now and make them yours.
This year New Balance celebrates the 20th anniversary of their 580 silhouette, and now that the formalities are over, the festivities continue with two new knitted versions of the new 'Reengineered' offering. The Reengineered 580 ditches the cumbersome panelling of the upper, opting for a contemporary, streamline knitted construction. The heel cap, side support and outsole echo the familiar feel of the OG runner, while the knitted upper utilises a fade from top to bottom, giving a more dynamic look. The two initial colourways are a black and white gradient, as well as indigo and white.
The New Balance 580 Reengineered ‘Knit Pack’ is available now from select retailers and the New Balance online store.
