I know there are a lot of you guys waiting for these - so are we. But New Balance just let us know that they had some issues with production and will not have as many pairs as promised. So in order to be fair and just to all the stores that were supposed to get them New Balance has delayed the release and will split up all pairs between the stores.
So, at this point we don't have any release date. We will let you know through our blog as soon as we hear more from New Balance.
We're very proud to be one of just a few selected accounts in the world to carry the highly sought after headwear projects between iconic hat manufacturer Kangol and Japan's number one streetwear guru Hiroshi Fujiwara's fragment design.
Every time they link together magic happens.
This time they've worked on a wool/acrylic Jacquard Earlap Pull-on.
The Jacquard incorporates the fragment logo, Hiroshi Fujiwara's initials and is inspired by traditional kimono patterns.
On top of that it has a fleece lining, perfect for the extreme cold we've got in Sweden right now.
It comes in three different colorways:
Red (total production: 150 pcs), Charcoal (total production: 300 pcs) and Brown (total production: 150 pcs).
Available at the Kangol store in Tokyo as of today.
Will be available here at Sneakersnstuff soon.
The Japanese version of the legendary motion control trail runner 580 from New Balance first brought our attention ten years ago. Inspired by the 1990's NB runner with the same number.
This is truly a proper runner, even though most, if not all our customers know it as the shoe that Tokyo based stores MAD Hectic and mita Sneakers have been collaborating with many, many times.
The blue and yellow MT580NBX (note that it says Black on the actual box) is part of Phase 4 of the New Balance Japan 10 Years Anniversary of the MT580.
Designed by Hectic and mita. Very nice.
Available, along with a bunch of other great 10 Years Anniversary colorways, in-store and online now.
It sounds familiar doesn't it?
It doesn't have anything to do with the great Sandy Boedecker or Nike SB.
Inspired by the super classic runner 1300CL. This release carry the same letters as the New Balance x Crooked Tongues x solebox collaboration that was released at the Bread & Butter show in Berlin about four years ago.
This release is perhaps the finest we¨ve seen coming out of the New Balance Japan headquárters.
The attention to details is insane. They fit like they should and not small like the Asian made 1500's normally do.
Limited to just 600 pairs.
All individually numbered this release will not be here forever, in fact I think they will sell out very fast.
They've just landed and will be available at only one store in Scandinavia (read Sneakersnstuff). In-store at Sneakersnstuff Stockholm very soon and online at Sneakersnstuff later today.
Recap! The Lacoste Legends Launch Party was sooo nice! We flew in Breakestra's Music Man Miles from Los Angeles to represent Stones THrow. Swedish champion DJ Ego got the party started in a great way and Scratch GBG's Adam Lövet was on fire. Thanks to everyone that came by the store!
Big up to Kingsize Magazine, i-D Magazine and Lacoste.

In the meantime, while we're solving the problem, they're available in-store.
Like the brand new collaboration between Denim Demon and Kangol.
Inspired by the hat worn by superstar skier Ingemar Stenmark (and the rest of Sweden during his heydays). As always with Denim Demon, they've featured a couple of reindeers and a few Sami drums, not forgetting where they come from. The Denim Demon x Kangol hat is produced in a limited run of just 150 pieces per colorway.
Edit: They're npw available online!
The latest collaboration between Singapore's finest sneaker store, Limited Edt Vault, and New Balance is here.
This time they've worked with the fine craftsmen in Flimby, England and created a 577.
As most of you NB heads know the New Balance Flimby factory is famous for their flawless work.
Using nothing but top notch materials, even the inside has a very luxury feel to it.
The 577 BST comes in limited numbers.
We're proud to say that we're in fact the one and only store in Sweden to carry these beauties.
Each pair comes with a money bag.
Available in-store today.
Available online soon.
The extremelly well made running collection designed by Undercover Lab's own Jun Takahashi sold out pretty fast. Good thing we just recieved a nice re-stock of the whole collection. Part of the collection is available online. The rest is available in-store at our Stockholm store.
Learn more about Nike x Undercover GIRA:
Gyakusou takes its name from a small but highly dedicated group of Tokyo-based runners – including Takahashi – who passionately run in their city. The name Gyakusou comes from ‘gyaku’ meaning wrong way or reverse and ‘sou’ meaning ‘run or running’ — a reference to the group running counter-clockwise while the rest of Tokyo’s runners run clockwise in the city’s parks. It draws upon a shared obsession for design innovation and improving the performance of the athlete.
The Gyakusou collection translates Nike’s performance design language by expanding on core appeal with products that deliver innovative, lightweight, waterproof, breathable fabrics and moisture management. This offered Takahashi new challenges and opportunities. “With Undercover we’ve utilized high-tech fabrics before, but through our design partnership with Nike, we were able to create a functional collection that uses cutting edge sporting innovations.
The Stretch Jacket’s laser cut, no sew construction, strategic seam placement and Dri-FIT sweat-off panels are a perfect example of this streamlined rethink. A special watch window on the Fabric Mix Jacket, removable sleeves on the Zip Off Jacket and reversible headwear allow extra expression and an easier wear. The Gyakusou Zoom Spider TT+ running shoe encapsulates Nike’s latest technologies in two unique makeups, with Lunarlite foam, reactive Zoom Air, Flywire support and reflective elements that complement the all-over reflective check options on key apparel in the line.
With concealed specially developed pockets added to staple pieces like shirts, pants and shorts, a technical approach is sustained throughout. Total articulation and storage solutions were paramount during the design process. Carrying day-to-day essentials in silence is an integral part of Takahashi’s needs as a runner, ensuring his run remains a mobile personal space where he can concentrate, unwind and continually achieve. Fabrics remain quiet, while keys and coins are kept from contact — one of the designer’s main concerns, “I was using every pocket my pant had. Now with this pocket system, you can put things in with order without making noise. I think that will help the regular runner.”
For the inaugural Fall/Holiday 10 collection, Nike and Takahashi also focused on colors. Wanting to provide an alternative to traditional running neons and brights, the result sees subtle colors that Takahashi describes “reflect a harmony with nature” fused with reflective safety details and a recurring red trim inspired by the artery vein — part of performance’s physical foundations.
The perfect Christmas gift.
