New Balance and No Vacancy Inn have announced a collaborative 650 releasing exclusively via StockX. The release will come as part of the marketplace’s Initial Product Offering (IPO) program.
For their most recent New Balance shoe Tremaine Emory and Brock Korsan of No Vacancy Inn drew inspiration from famed architect and designer George Nakashima in their use of tonal tans and simple clean branding. Uppers made of premium suede, mesh, and leather come in tan earth tones and are complimented by a gum sole and New Balance logo. Simple No Vacancy Inn branding adorns the tongue along with the 650 logo.
Included with every pair is an exclusive hangtag USB that is loaded with a custom playlist curated by No Vacancy Inn. The tunes are what Emory and Korsan have been listening to while staying at home during the COVID-19 shelter in place order.
Tremaine Emory says the collaborative 650 “continues our ‘Water and WiFi’ theme, a metaphor for the two things we all need – nature and technology.” Only 400 pairs will be available starting May 5th at Noon EST (11 am CDT) via StockX.
