The sneaker label and street cap company joins forces to illuminate the MRT580

To celebrate the 20th anniversary of the sneaker model from New Balance, New Era chips in by transforming the MRT580 with its street wear edge. Taking its cue from the fluorescent streaks in solarised photography that contrasts a greyscale base, the new MRT580NE features an inky nubuck body that illuminates in the night with its glow-in-the-dark outsole.

The handsome pair of sneakers might look like they were made for the city — just imagine pairing it with denim and cruising the concrete jungle — but, it actually comes equipped to tackle terrain that's less well-trodden. Stabilisation and cushioning grounds the MRT580NE even on rough surfaces. Packaged together with a classic New Era wool snapback, the jet black duo is a fast pass to getting your street game on. 

The New Balance x New Era MRT580NE launches today, 8 January, exclusively at Limited Edt Vault located at 313@Somerset.
