Norse Projects and New Balance have taken inspiration from the architecture of the University of Copenhagen for their latest collaboration. The Lucem Hafnia capsule gets its name from the Latin inscription at the university’s main building “COELESTEM ADSPICIT LUCEM,” which translates as “The Eye of The Celestial Light.” The second half of the name, Hafnia, is a reference to the Latin name for Norse Project’s native Copenhagen.

After taking on the Rainier silhouette last year, this time the two brands have decided to celebrate the New Balance 770, which was first introduced in 1986 before becoming a classic for runners. The 2017 rework of the shoe has been updated with new features including embossed New Balance branding, smooth nubuck, full-grain leather and Norse Projects branding on the insole. Both colorways, Brown Navy and Rainy Olive, are references to the University of Copenhagen and the interior of the library and will be available on April 28 at norsestore.com and Norse Projects’s Copenhagen store.

Besides the Norse Projects collaboration, New Balance has recently released new terracotta 995s.
