New Balance – NB 999 Feral Creation Collection

New Balance presents the new “Feral Creations” pack, with four different models of the 999. The NB Feral Creations Collection is an Asian Inspired collection for global release.

For the 99X series celebrations running throughout 2009, the company has worked with key retailers Leftfoot (Singapore) and Mita Sneakers (Japan) to reintroduce this iconic New Balance model.

The collection is divided into two sets, one from each retailer, consisting of an exclusive pair that is numbered and limited to 660 units worldwide, as well as general release version that will be more widely available. Each exclusive edition is interconnected with the underlying theme of the colour „grey‟, which is the original colour of the 999 and 99X series as well as New Balance‟s heritage colour.

Leftfoot – Singapore
Located in the young city-nation of Singapore, retailer Leftfoot took hints of 2 animals seldom seen in the ultramodern city but once roamed archipelago centuries ago – lion and peacock. Get them here

CM999 LNH (Lion Head) – Limited Edition
Both the national symbol and the national color, the Leftfoot x New Balance CM999 LNH instills the color of Singapore’s lion head national symbol and applied on its front vamp. Follow by deep grey and “cracked concrete” design, both in reference to the urban setting. A splash of purple is apply in homage to New Balance Japan, who led the project. True to its “Functional Improvement” motto, a combination of suede, leather, wool felt, water-repellent ripstop nylon and 3M Scotchlite all went into its construction.
