New Balance’s Military-Inspired Kicks

New Balance has not one, but two pairs of military-inspired MTG580 sneakers out this July.

The first MTG580 pair was inspired by the B-3 bomber jacket. It’s made mostly of distressed leather and GORE-TEX, with a sheepskin wool lining underneath the tongue. The metallic look of the leather is sick!

The second pair of MTG580’s were inspired by MA-1 Flight jacket made popular in the mid 90’s. These are made of olive green and orange GORE-TEX and ripstop nylon.

They even come with interchangable Velcro logos.
