Collaboration, at its very core, represents one or more persons working together to create something of value. This rings true when the term is used within sneaker culture. But where the latest VILLA and New Balance collaboration is concerned, the word takes on multiple meanings.
The VILLA x New Balance 247 “The Collective” is not only a collaboration between the two entities named, but a union inspired by the creations of artists and a partnering creative ambassador to oversee the project, artist Ron English – all working in collaboration. This artistic rendering of the 247 is produced in premium pig suede in grey, pink, blue, and navy. The shoe is finished with a gum outer with white flakes seen inside.
Fans of this VILLA x New Balance 247 “The Collective” can expect pairs exclusively at VILLA both in-store and online on October 21.
