Since I'm posting about some New Balance shoes today I'll drop another release on ya. This here has gotten little or no attention (as far as I can tell) from any of the major sneaker blogs but it's an extremely hot shoe. Maybe I just missed it when folks were covering the release but that's hard for me to believe as my New Balance obsession makes it a priority that I check for NBs on a daily basis.
This is a release that I saw over at Atmos Tokyo. A New Balance 1500 limited edition Black & Burgundy. What is sweet about this sneaker is the sole. Check it out below. Nice textures, materials and colors all add up to a shoe that I really wanna get my feet into!

Atmos x New Balance x Porter Buffalo Check Collection 574s

After releasing the Atmos x Levis BUFFALO CHECK series, here comes another collaboration of the Atmos BUFFALO CHECK. Atmos is, as usual, quite active with their collaborations and have just started previewing their latest one, a three-way project together with New Balance and Porter. These New Balance M574J will release in Japan on December 8th.
Please check more info and pics on atmos.

The Buffalo Check Collection consists of two New Balance 574's and two Porter bags. The 574's come with an upper made up of plaid and a fur like suede. They come in a black and a brown colorway. Atmos also got together with Porter to create matching bags, a Boston bag and a Day Bag.

I would consider this a "collectors only" kinda release. The colorways and wild mixture of materials guarantees that nobody outside of serious New balance collectors is gonna pick this one up. That being said, I am, of course, very excited about the release.
