Denmark’s Wood Wood is known for their premier fashion and footwear game. They might push out the same number of collaborations each year like some other shops but when they do the sneaker world pays attention. Such was the case a few years back when they joined up with New Balance to put their own spin on the 670.

A super rare release the sneakers were limited to only 96 pairs being produced for retail. Not the typical choice, but the brand tends to enjoy to work on classic silhouettes that aren’t the normal product. Relaunched as part of then New Balance’s 100th anniversary, the lightweight runner from the mid-80’s was rediscovered in a way only Wood Wood could do. Hailing from the famed Flimby factory, the assembly and build of the 670 was the highest of quality. Wanting to stick with New Balance history and stray from the then current popularity of crazy prints they decided to go simple. So simple in fact they used stock materials from the UK factory.
Navy nubuck worked its way onto the base with complementing panels in the form of purple and cyan suede were added. To finish it all off the addition of Safety Orange was added to the liner and logo surround to ensure they stood out even more. Two sets of laces were included with each of the 96 pairs, but the coolest addition were the matching socks packed into each box. The Wood Wood x New Balance 670 is a pair any sneakerholic would love to have in their possession.
