Sneaker retailer VILLA is collaborating with New Balance for a special premium edition of the 247 this fall, taking inspiration from a different kind of collaboration: a group of artists and artwork working together to achieve a beautiful and moving final product. And that’s exactly what you get in sneaker form for “The Collective” 247, featuring a high-quality construction in pig suede and leather in painterly shades grey, soft pink, light blue, and navy. Further details include reflective accents and a gum sole with white flakes mixed in.
Villa and New Balance then emphasize the collaborative artistic theme by partnering with artist Ron English to serve as a creative ambassador for the launch. The shoe launches October 21st exclusively at VILLA in-store and online in limited quantities.
