Founded in 1965, the MTA is a public benefit corporation responsible for public transport across New York City, with its iconic subway the focal point of this sneaker’s monochromatic design. The 920 itself is a relatively new silhouette having only been unveiled last August, but has already seen it dressed in the colors of the Chinese New Year, as well being at the centre of a collaboration with Patta.
Crafted in New Balance’s U.K. home of Flimby, Cumbria, the 920 has been dressed in a classic grey hue with revamped mesh, reflective detailing and the official MTA logo branding on the heel and inserts.
A shoe made in the U.K. but worn across the streets of New York, the New Balance x MTA 920 symbolises the borderless relationship between two historical entities.
The New Balance x MTA MIUK 920 is set to drop exclusively on May 8 via Dover Street Market webstores globally.
