Aminé’s Next New Balance Collaboration is Limited to Just 503 Pairs
Renowned Portland rapper Aminé has given fans and sneakerheads something to look forward to with the revelation of his second collaboration with New Balance. This partnership sees the transformation of the robust New Balance 610 into a lifestyle-ready slip-on mule, an unexpected yet enticing twist on the trail-ready model. The "Mini Mooz" collaboration is an exclusive series with only 503 pairs available, paying homage to Oregon's area code.
The original New Balance 610, known for its durability and outdoor suitability, retains its rugged sole in this edition. However, Aminé's rendition streamlines the silhouette with supple mesh and suede overlays, maintaining the iconic suede heel counter and the distinctive bulbous features of its predecessor. This collaboration is deeply personal and creatively playful, taking inspiration from the stages of a banana's lifecycle. It presents the shoe in three unique colorways, each representing the banana at different stages: from green and unripe to the perfect yellow and finally to the overripe shade indicative of banana bread.
Each pair of the 610S "Mini Mooz" comes with a color-coordinated hang-tag and is packaged in a bright blue box that emphasizes the vibrancy and creativity of the collection. In a limited release, the bright green variant will be available solely in Portland with a count of 100 pairs on November 10th. Following this, the ripe banana-yellow version will see another 100 pairs released in New York City on November 12th. The series concludes with the brown, banana bread-inspired colorway, set to release online at the Club Banana store with the final 303 pairs on November 15th.
