END. x New Balance 575 “Marble White”

by Henrik Buzzi

Carrara marble. A rare form of metamorphosed limestone found exclusively in the most northern tip of Tuscany, Italy. A covetable, luxury material used throughout history to create some of the world’s finest works of art and architectural wonders; Carrara marble forms the bedrock of END.’s inaugural collaboration with New Balance.

The sneaker’s upper is dressed in smooth nappa leather, contrasted with sandy pigskin suede overlays, all finely crafted in England. A crisp white heel counter sits atop a two-tone foam midsole built with ENCAP technology, providing both strength and stability through the sneaker’s back quarter, with a gum rubber outsole rounding out the sole. Sign off comes in the form of a powdered metal lace lock bearing the distinctive END. logo.

The END. x New Balance M575END ‘Marble White’ launches on 20th August at END. A highly limited specially commissioned Carrara marble END. x New Balance box has been created to house the collaborative sneaker, one of which will be given away to one lucky customer.
