New Balance 580 Sneakers Pop Up Store

CIMG9719_zpssc7wbkbg

To celebrate New Balance 580’s 20th Anniversary, the outlet at *Scape is currently converted into a one-of-a-kind pop up gallery.

The pop up store will be there from now to 17 July and you will be able to see the evolution of 580.

The gallery will also house a special exhibition of past limited edition collaborations with global sneaker stores, retailers and fashion labels. These include Mita Sneakers, Stussy, HECTIC, Undefeated, Colette, Wings + Horns, Bait, Packer Shoes, and New Era. The pop-up gallery will see exclusive launches of limited edition 580’s, as well as special 580 merchandise.

Fans will also receive a special edition pair 3D printed lace locks with every purchase of the 580 at the pop-up gallery on 11th June.





It was truly an eye opener for the both of us because we are fans of sneakers. Even though we have more than ten pairs of new balance at home, you won’t be able to find a pair of 580 in our shoe cabinet. Hence, this is a great opportunity for us to test the comfort and design of the model.


You will be surprised to know that even though the shoes are of the same model, the design can varies from lifestyle to light training and price varies from $149 to $229.

















After New Balance collaborated with Mita Sneakers, a Japanese brand, it became a favourite among sneaker lovers. This year, the brands are collaborating again on New Balance MRT580. Only 24 pairs will be available in Singapore at the price of $229. Do visit the store at *Scape, #02-15 from 11am to 9.30pm daily from now till 17 July.

Majority of the brands they carry are my favorites including Adidas, Reebok Classic, Pro-Keds, Keds, Sperry, Asics, Puma, Saucony Originals, Onitsuka Tiger, New Balance and Lacoste.

New Balance Media Preview S/S’15

Sometimes the perks of being a blogger is that you get to work with your favourite brands and get first hand news. For me, I was totally overwhelmed to receive New Balance’s invitation to the Media Preview of their Spring/Summer 2015 collection!

 

 

Of course, my trustworthy partner, writer, best friend and boyfriend attended the vent with me!

 

 

The shoes will be launch slowly until June. We caught ourselves eyeing on a few pairs of shoes already. My favourite pair morel 996 in pastel purple will be launched in May and the chances of me getting it is almost 99%!!! Hehehe. I hope they still have my size when I go back for it!

 

 

The model comes in pastel pink, pastel mint and pastel purple. The three of them are equally pretty!

 

 

574 in Pink (Bottom Left) caught my attention too. 574 as compared to 996 has a wider width.

 

 

More and more colors! This is why I love New Balance. They have all the interesting designs and colors. Seems like it will always keep you in style!

 

 

 

Here is our pick from the 574 model. I like the olive green he picked too.

 

 

Look at the pastel purple again!!

 

 

Other than lifestyle shoes, their performance shoes are as stylish and comfortable as well.

 

 

Fresh Foam Zante (picture below) are already available in stores at $169. I have a pair of Fresh Foam and I must really praise how comfortable it is to wear it for jogging sessions. It accompanied me to Color Run 2014 too!

 

Fresh Foam Zante is a great pair of running shoe for your everyday performance for a smooth underfoot feel and a fast feeling transition through their stride.

 

It has a unique underfoot feel and at the same time, lightweight.

 

 

Fresh Foam Boracay is the ultimate for J because he like the combination of silver, black and lime green. The entire pair of shoe is extremely eye catching and stylish! You can already find it in stores at $169.

 

Fresh Foam has ultra soft ride, but Fresh Foam Boracay can increase the cushy feel to make the ride smoother.

 

 

I think New Balance 890v5 is as pretty! I like the combination of pink, white and silver. Purple/blue/lime green is also available. This model will be in stores from April 2015 at $179.

 

Fans of 890 series would be happy to this is an improved version of the award-winning 890v4. It remains an ideal choice for people who wants to run fast or feel fast in an extremely lightweight package, without sacrificing durability, cushioning, or support.

 

 

 

Do you also know that they have shoes made in UK and USA? They are more premium than the other models but trust me, you can’t go wrong with them!

 

The stitches are hand sew and I am really really in love with some of the designs but sadly, female sizes are not available yet 🙁

 

I love this pair of 997 the most!!

 

 

Look at all the leathers…

 

 

 

 

His favourite pair from the ENTIRE collection 🙂

 

 

I hope you are as excited as me for the shoes to be launch in stores.
