WEST NYC x NEW BALANCE MT580 Alpine Guide Edition

Not all collaboration are created equal. Some are highly anticipated by fans upon first glimpse, others are purposely leaked to 'tease' the money bag teenagers to buy into the current hype. Some becomes classic, some will be in some kid's Christmas list only for the reason that they were made in limited number. Cooler stores gets better collaborations, although these days, almost all the sneaker boutique has a collaboration of some sort with these two brands, Asics and New Balance. Almost every week it seems there's something, it's almost as bad as Jordan Brand with their RETRO releases and Nike with their offerings as well.

This one particular collaboration was inspired by West NYC's owner Lester Wasserman’s love of the outdoors with color cues from both 90’s alpine and ski apparel. Although to a basketball guy like me, it looks like the Ol' Charlotte Hornets colorways. And you already know they will be LIMITED and of course there will be lines outside the store when these are scheduled to release September 22nd, 2012. Images via WestNYC147
