size? have managed to secure these three colourways of the classic New Balance 620 running shoe as a UK exclusive.
Say what you will about the big retailers, but they do our homeland proud when it comes to locking down kicks to be exclusive to the UK. It’s something you need a bigger store to be able to do really. This is a great example, with size? locking down these super-clean New Balance 620′s for the UK.
Originally released back in 1980, the 620 saw New Balance attempt to take on the new running trend of Nike’s “air” with a not so subtle advertising campaign of “LIGHTER THAN AIR”. Vintage New Balance advertising is equally as iconic as vintage Nike advertising, but for some reason less remembered by the masses today. Fortunately we have an example of this exact campaign at the bottom of this post.
A stripped back, to-the-point silhouette, the 620 couldn’t really have a better time for a comeback, what with the current trend of vintage, slimline New Balance runners. Fresh or beaten, they look good, making them a very flexible purchase – and they’re always priced right.
Head into your local size? store or over to the size? online store where you’ll find these dropping on Friday 21st September for £62 a pair.
