MIU MIU, the whimsical sister of the esteemed luxury house Prada, has made an audacious move by joining forces with New Balance, while Prada has found its match with Three Stripes. The duo has already tinkered with the iconic 574 model not once, but twice. And now, they have set their sights on the often overlooked New Balance 530 silhouette.
Unlike their previous collaborations on the 574s, MIU MIU’s take on the New Balance 530 transcends the boundaries of mere material and color experimentation. They have boldly replaced the original ABZORB sole unit with a lower-profile bottom, reminiscent of New Balance’s Minimus line. But that’s not all. The upper comes in two stunning options – tan or brown suede, with the brown iteration boasting a tasteful distressed finish. Each pair proudly showcases the unmistakable “MIU MIU” branding and comes equipped with both leather and cotton laces, a testament to the brand’s attention to detail.
Ladies and gentlemen, allow us to present you with an exclusive first look at the highly anticipated MIU MIU x New Balance 530 collaboration. These marvelous creations stole the spotlight on the illustrious runway of MIU MIU’s Spring/Summer 2024 collection. Alas, sneakerheads must exercise patience, for it will be a few more months before these coveted gems grace the shelves.
In the ever-evolving world of sneakers, New Balance blesses us with more delightful news. The New Balance 2002R Protection Pack, now available in four vibrant new colorways, promises to further elevate your sneaker game.
