No Vacancy Inn has revealed its latest New Balance collaboration, reworking the 650 silhouette as part of StockX‘s new New Balance IPO auction. 400 pairs of the sneaker will release through a blind auction, allowing customers to set the market price of the collaboration.
This release was originally teased by No Vacancy Inn founders Tremaine Emory and Brock Korsan last year. The 1990’s silhouette has been dressed in a tonal upper, featuring hits of cream, dusty pink and off-white. This muted colorway features across an upper of suede, leather and mesh panelling, while a darker “N” logo stands-out against the backdrop.
The design is inspired by furniture designer George Nakashima, and is finished with a hangtag USB “key.” The key sports StockX branding, and features a curated playlist of music Emory and Korsan have been listening to during lockdown.
StockX’s New Balance IPO — along with the limited-edition No Vacancy Inn x New Balance 650 collaboration — is due to launch on the StockX website on May 5.
In other New Balance news, the brand has channeled three classic ’70s designs onto its 327 silhouette.
