It’s been 20 years since the fall of the Berlin Wall. Today Berlin is not only a symbol of freedom but also innovative fashion and streetwear. Celebrating the 20th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall, New Balance has collaborated with Overkill on a limited edition sneaker. The “Berlin Wall Package” is a special make up (SMU*) of the New Balance 577 style. Many a detail such as the special print on the insole recall the historic moment in world history. The shoe is available in three colors with reference to the three important parties — red refers to the flag of the USSR, the former Soviet Union; blue refers to the US flag; while black refers to the city of Berlin’s emblem, the Berlin bear. *SMUs are special editions of New Balance sneakers that are developed with an artist or member of the contemporary street style scene.
