The New Balance x Oshmans x Mita 574

shipped from SlamJam (Italy) to Virginia in 3 days, shipped Thursday, arrived Monday by DHL, delivery of the year hands down. One day before my trip, these needed signature confirmation so it worked out perfectly.The inside is very buttery, you will see in one of the pictures, the shoes are very comfortable, I don't know if I will go with the rope laces or white laces, either way I will probably remove the mojito leaf. Very well built shoe and can you say "GUM SOLE"?

My top 5 in no order





post #4420 of 30601
  1. Hanon x New Balance 1500 - Not only is the 1500 my favorite New Balance model, but they pushed all the right buttons, using several shades of my favorite color: blue.
  2. Concepts x New Balance 999 "SEAL" - Although not as nice as the Kennedys, the widespread availability (which gave a pair to everyone who actually wanted the shoe), extremely high-quality materials, and an amazing colorway put this shoe at #2.
  3. West NYC x New Balance 580 "Alpine Guide" - A perfect combination of inspiration, a great choice of colors, and the NB model that would flawlessly pull it all together, the "Alpine Guides" could only be improved upon, IMO, if they removed the chunky 580 tag on the tongue. Other than that, it's brilliant.

Sucker for that mint suede on the mojitos. Not a fan of the heel color blocking. I wonder if the designers were influenced at all by one of the stussy 670s a few years back. Although im guessing only a handful of people here would know or care about them. The gray heel is not shown in those pics (as well as the bulky toe from a side profile) so they look pretty good lol. Overall though it's not bad, especially since you guys avoided spending $200+ on asian mades. I can certainly appreciate the extra details they put into these even though i could do without them. Definitely yank those rope laces though. They make them look really poor quality.

post #4424 of 30601
West NYC MT580s, this was the release of the year for me no matter what brand we are talking about. Quality is amazing, colors are great, just a very well done shoe.
Concepts 999 Seals, again quality is amazing, great mix of colors, only gripe is it is dang near impossible to find an 11.5 so I had to settle for 11...LOL
Burn Rubber Blue Collars, I'm a sucker for gum soles and the 3M hits on this shoe are sweet. Nothing to gaudy, just a solid shoe that you can rock with about anything.
Salmon Sole 1300s, I don't know what it is, just something about this shoe. I mean there is nothing that you couldn't do on a custom minus the sole but I enjoy them.
Last two I don't have but I am patiently searching for (at a good price)
Hanon 1500, I echo just about everything said by those before me, love blue, love the blocking on these, just don't love the reseller prices.
Colette/Undftd 580, I love 580s and the colors on this shoe are great. Just need to snag my size and I will be happy.

Others that I woud like to pick up: J Crew 998s, Steel Blue 1300s, Red 999s

I know I have more than 5 but there are tons that I like.
FOR SALE: Everything, my entire collection. Jordan, Kobe, LeBron, NB, Saucony. Size 11, 11.5 and some 12.

Here is my 'two cents' on the year in NB 2012
M990GRY
1500 Chosen Few
580 Alpine Guide
Non-native 997
1300 Salmon sole

No particular order, but the 990 is definitely my #1 for the materials, workmanship and sheer classic look and color way. A heavily slept on shoe IMHO.

There have been SO many great NB releases this year, it's really hard for me to narrow it down.
post #4426 of 30601
I'm gonna guess these are fake? They're listed as 580s.




Speaking of 580s, these were my favorite NBs of the year...partly because they were the only pair I really tried to get and was able to:

They're legit and still 580's. Those are M580's. The second pair you posted are MT580's.

New Balance uses the same model number for a lot of different silhouettes.

Yea, I know lol.

Nice kicks released them in december 2011, but I'm pretty sure other shops didn't get them until January, so I decided to throw them in lol.

Thanks for that. Now that I think about it, I actually had them in Navy probably 10 years ago.

In Aruba for a week with the family. On our way to the house and I spot this... (girlfriend saw it and immediately said "I know where we're gunna be stopping" laugh.gif )

  

 

1000

 

Went in there today to check it out. They only had a few classics. Couple 574's and 576's. Saw the "Year of the Dragon" 574 pack.

They were on sale only $69 US so I had to grab them. Got the yellow ones. The netted tongue is a nice touch.

and how about adding in a reason (or 2) for WHY it's your top 3/5 for the year?
anyways...great suggestion kip2mylou! esp. w/ the year windin' down and comin' to a close...
and slightly off-topic...but is your handle by any chance a reference to rafer alston and his and1 alter ego?

 

Yeah, that's where my name is from. My real name is Kip, so I thought it made sense to just drop the 'S.'

 

And you could have done a top 3/5 of either, collabs or general releases.

 

My collab list is:

1. Ronnie Fieg Steel Blue 999

2. Concepts SEALS 999

3. Alpine 580/Salmon Sole 1300

 

General release:

1. 1300 Steel Blue

2. 998 Denim/996 Denim

3. Dark Grey 996
