It’s always pleasing to see someone take a silhouette, that is pretty much unheard of, and bring it to the masses in a special way. LA based HUF teams with New Balance on a 205 model to bring forward a make-up and design thats pretty appealing. Right down to the characteristic tongue tag. Think about it. Who would have thought someone would make-up an NB to skate in?
On top of the NB 205 release, HUF threw the same color-way of Navy, Pink and Green (HUF hue) to a 686-790 snowboard boot. A perfect timing considering many are snowboarding heavily this month out here in NYC/NJ. You will be able to grab these tomorrow at HUF LA 410 N. Fairfax Ave., Los Angeles, CA 90036 – 323.944.0017 and than on the 11th at their other location at 516 Hayes St.San Francisco, CA 94102 – 415.552.3820. But it doesn’t end there. Hanon-shop will also start taking pre-orders for the shoe tomorrow. Expect continued releases at other retailers soon, with Nice Kicks Shop (2815 Guadalupe Austin, TX 78705 – 512.320.8100) already selling the 205.
Box Price – $65 for the NB 205
Really like what HUF has done here. Materials seem on point, right down to the nylon mesh and pink heel panel on the NB 205. What do you guys think about the 205? Curious to hear any opinions…
