After a sneak peek, the upcoming END. x New Balance 575 Marble White is officially revealed, as it’s the first-ever collaboration between both brands.
As suggested, the defining aesthetic is inspired from Carrara marble — a rare form of metamorphosed limestone found exclusively in the most northern tip of Tuscany, Italy, which is used throughout history to create some of the world’s finest works of art and architectural wonders.
To evoke that respective theme, the sneaker’s upper is dressed in smooth nappa leather, contrasted with sandy pigskin suede overlays, all of which are finely crafted in England. A crisp white heel counter is adhered atop a two-tone foam midsole built with ENCAP technology, while a gum rubber outsole rounds out the composition. Sign off comes in the form of a powdered metal lace lock bearing the UK label’s distinctive logo.
The model is set to release exclusively at the END.‘s flagship location first on Thursday, August 18th, with an online release to follow on Saturday, August 20th.
Furthermore, a highly limited specially commissioned Carrara marble box has been created to house the collaborative sneaker, one of which will be given away to one lucky customer on the night of its official release in-store.
I’m just a sucker for runners. You can’t go wrong with this colorway either. It would’ve been cool if some form of marble detailing was implemented, but, still a nice outcome.
