New Balance has joined forces with Australian boutique, Highs and Lows to release a New Balance CM577 Day and Night pack to celebrate High and Lows’ 5th anniversary. The Highs and Lows team described this pack as follows:
“We wanted to create a shoe that’d accommodate the beach-side strolls, mid-day cookouts and streetside sundowners that all take place under our city’s blue skies and golden sun. When it came to the Night shoe, we agreed that the uncertainty of the evening called for a more stealthy approach and a little more solidarity in the materials. Therefore, the Night shoe became a black fullgrain leather and raw nubuck assassin with a breathable perforated toebox, 3M highlights and a little speckle thrown on the white sole to acknowledge the moon and stars that watch our every move after dark.”
The 577 Day and Night pack will be available on May 21, 2011 at Blends, CNCPTS, Burn Rubber, Bows and Arrows, Saint Alfred, and Shoe Gallery.
Enjoy the HAL x New Balance 577 “Day and Night” Visual Lookbook below:

colette x Super Motor Scooter

colette and Super Motor Company have teamed up to create a special colette version of their Super 50/100 motorcycle.
It’s distinctive colette blue en white color scheme has been stretched to an extreme, by replacing every chrome part with a fresh coat of gloss white, resembling a 70´s cool mint ad shot.
The Super Motor Company is a Dutch start-up by two petrol veined cousins who got bored of their fast and subsequently expensive motorcycles. The time was right for a new, affordable and easy on the eye motorcycle with a touch of yesteryear. They decided to take the plunge to design and produce it themselves – Super Motor Company was born. The Super motorcycle is a semi automatic four-stroke which is technically based on a so called step-through motorcycle, also known as a Cub.
This beauty will be shown and sold at colette in Paris from May 23rd.
