STONE ISLAND AND NEW BALANCE COLLABORATE FOR FIRST EVER FOOTBALL COLLECTION
Stone Island and New Balance have revealed their latest collaboration as the two brands reunite to announce their first ever special edition football collection.
The new collection breaks new ground by bringing renowned textile innovators, Stone Island, onto the pitch for the first time, celebrating the immensely rich heritage the Italian sportswear brand holds in football through some of New Balance’s most popular products.
Headlining the collaboration is a limited-edition New Balance Furon v7 x Stone Island, the brand’s latest evolution football boot, arriving in a new custom camouflage print pattern that pays homage to Stone Island’s famed archival pattern, featuring Stone Island’s compass alongside the New Balance logo. The Furon v7 features an innovative Hypoknit upper, with mesh lining and off-set lacing to deliver impressive lockdown, support, and an increased strike zone.
Another component of the collection is a Stone Island x New Balance football kit; a collector’s edition, full kit set features a jersey and shorts, outfitted with an original Stone Island camouflage pattern, inspired by the brand’s archival designs, and a silicone application of the iconic compass logo. Solid black socks offer a sleek disruption of the head-to-toe camo pattern. Jersey and shorts in the Stone Island Kit Set are made from 100% recycled polyester. The iconic 574 Legacy completes the collection. This modernized classic features a ripstop and suede upper and dark green colorway, for a deconstructed archive inspired look.
The Stone Island x New Balance Furon v7 and kit will be available exclusively on StoneIsland.com on November 21st and in Mainland China through Stone Island WeChat Store from November 22nd; globally on November 25th on NewBalance.com and selected stockists. The 574 Legacy’s will be available later this winter.
