The comeback of the New Balance 580 has been quite eventful, attracting attention from all corners. In the past year, this once Japan-exclusive model has made its way into the limelight through a delightful mix of independent and collaborative projects. And now, the latest addition to this lineup is a remarkable partnership between the Boston-based brand and Singapore's esteemed Limited Edt and Mr. Sabotage.

Developed as part of the "Urban Islander II" initiative, the three-way project builds upon the success of its predecessor.

In 2020, the trio introduced the original concept, which drew inspiration from the vibrant urban landscape and serene tropical retreats of Singapore. The previous collection featured the New Balance 327 and NB 900, reimagining these classic silhouettes with a military-inspired twist.

The forthcoming sequel shifts its focus to the NB 580, presenting it in an understated beige and black color palette. A distinctive pineapple pattern, synonymous with the "Urban Islander" concept, is printed on the sneaker's sockliner and inner lining. Crafted with premium suede and adorned with 3M reflective accents, the shoes showcase a perfect blend of exceptional craftsmanship and functional design. The Rollbar-assisted sole unit, renowned for its reliability, is presented in a light-colored arrangement that echoes the aesthetics of Limited Edt's concept.

Limited Edt and SBTG have extended their "Urban Islander" concept beyond New Balance shoes, incorporating it into various clothing and accessories. Alongside the collection of footwear, there are also a Helinox Chair One, OMBAK shorts, tote bag, hat, and socks, all featuring the distinctive pineapple print and color scheme.

Get ready to feast your eyes on the official pictures showcasing this exciting collaboration. Exclusively available at Limited Edt stores, as well as limitededt.com and sbtgsurplus.com, the highly anticipated New Balance 580 and the rest of the captivating "Urban Islander II" collection will be up for grabs starting from December 15th.
