Clean silhouettes and consistency in design have been the hallmark of wings+horns since the brand launched in 2004, and it’s this attention to detail and made in Canada-quality that brands seek when they partner with the menswear label for special projects.

Enter New Balance. We’ve been introduced to collaborations between the Boston footwear company and Vancouver apparel brand before; with previous successful projects already in place and a mutual respect for Japanese attention to detail, it’s only fitting for the two brands to create another rendition of the MT580 silhouette that proves once again that their partnership is a triumphant one.

To those eager to point out similarities with the highly coveted MT580 10th anniversary sneaker from 2014, you’ll be able to find plenty of new design elements to dissect. Taking upon the model’s Deconstructed edition, the sneaker is a minimalist footwear’s dream — an elegant rendition of the iconic trail-turned-lifestyle shoe built for form and function with its cushioned REVlite sole. Having first launched in ‘96 as a Japan exclusive, the particular model celebrates its 20th birthday this year, and is tastefully updated to modern times with a contemporary three-piece edition made from laser-cut panels of premium leather. A neoprene mesh sock liner inserted on the inside ensures a comfortable, breezy fit while whip-stitch detailing outlines each heel.

The Canadian brand also overhauled its flagship in its coastal hometown of Vancouver, BC to accommodate an exclusive showroom for the collaboration, where the shoe was unveiled at a celebratory VIP launch event for friends, family and media this past weekend with 33 Acres Brewing Company. Priced at $240 CAD (approximately $180 USD), the New Balance MT580 collaboration is now available at wings+horns’ showroom space and online shop, and is set for a global launch at select stockists May 28. Catch a closer glimpse at the collab by viewing the official lookbook.
