Canadian sneaker lovers are about to get a real treat. New Balance Canada and Capsule Toronto release a limited edition lifestyle shoe, the NB X Capsule Canadian Tuxedo. Featuring denim material, this classic sneaker is inspired by the “Canadian Tuxedo,” an outfit comprised of a denim shirt and denim jeans. Held exclusively at Capsule Toronto (69 Yorkville Ave, Toronto ON) for two weeks, the first 30 pairs sold will be packaged in boxes made of reclaimed wood.
Modelled after the MT580, these limited edition shoe feature a gum rubber outsole tinted in a maple syrup colour with a pattern designed after the Capsule Toronto store backdrop. The theme denim on denim is the base to the overall look, the shoes’ tongue label is made of leather and fashioned after the tags on jeans, while the New Balance logo is based on cut-offs. A special insert features the well-known Capsule graphic and logo.
I can’t wait to get a pair of these awesome kicks on my feet! The NB X Capsule Canadian Tuxedo will be available on August 9 with a suggested retail price of $180.00.
