Retro-Inspired Violet Sneakers

The Palace x New Balance 580 Two-Piece Sneaker Pack is Out Now

— September 20, 2022 — Fashion
For the first time, streetwear brand Palace Skateboards has partnered with American footwear giant New Balance to launch a new two-piece footwear capsule that delivers reimagined versions of New Balance's retro 580 silhouette. The new sneakers come in a 'Pansy Violet' and 'Deep Shaded Spruce' colorway, which join the already released 'Lapis Blue' and 'Gargoyle' versions.

Both models feature rollbar midsoles, hairy suede overlays, and mesh fabric underlays. In addition, they come equipped with a stash pocket on their tongues. For Palace, the new collaboration comes on the heels of the brands recently launched Autumn collection.

For those interested, the Palace Skateboards x New Balance 580 sneakers are now available to purchase on both brands' websites as well as at select retailers throughout the United States.
