Up There X New Balance 'Backyard Legends'
Presenting the first-ever Up There New Balance collaboration: we call these the Backyard Legends!
We all love a bit of sport but let’s be honest, not everyone is out there breaking records. Great feats of athleticism are impressive, but what about a typical Aussie backyard bbq?
A single afternoon might see you playing a few overs of cricket between flipping snags, swatting away mozzies and coping with relentless humidity — all the while grappling an ice-cold tinny in your spare hand! You may not like it, but this is what peak performance looks like.
With all of that in mind, we set out to design a shoe ready for the sport of suburban life. It’s got lightweight fused panels, lush suede, custom shrouds and even some quirky 2000s shoelaces. Everything comes together in a colourway that’s basically about nothing and they’re brimming with New Balance nerd easter eggs.
Our collaborative New Balance 2002R ‘Backyard Legends’ will release in store from 8am AEST Friday the 15th of July and online release the following day from 8am AEST Saturday the 16th of July.
We'd like to invite you all down to celebrate the launch of the collaboration from 3pm until 8pm Friday the 15th of July at our 15 McKillop Street Store.
We’ll be throwing some snags on the bbq for a good old sausage sizzle along with some cold drinks courtesy of Range Brewing so head down, we’re looking forward to seeing you there...
