Releasing as part of the eYe line.

Junya Watanabe is certainly no stranger when it comes to New Balance collabs, but the upcoming Junya Watanabe x New Balance 574 collection may just be one of his best yet. Releasing as part of his eYe line, the Japanese style iconic has outfitted the '80s runner in three seasonal colorways including "Black," "Incense," and "Dark Camo," and we're taking our very first look yet.

Featuring premium full suede constructions that are soft and smooth to the touch, the "Black" is painted in a charcoal hue, while the "Incense" and "Dark Camo" opt for beige and olive tones, respectively. The iconic "N" logo is finely stitched on the lateral and medial side panels, and around the back you'll find the "eYe" logo debossed. In fact, more co-branded detailing is printed on the insoles to remind you that this isn't any old collaboration, and to round it all off, all three sneakers sit atop ENCAP midsoles for comfort and cushioning that's unlike anything else out there.

Coming with an extra pair of laces each, the Junya Watanabe x New Balance 574 collection is set to release on October 21st. Expected to be pretty limited, don't worry if you take a L as these will be available via Ox Street's dedicated 574 page very soon. While you're here, make sure you let us know what your favorite colorway is!
