New Balance will be teaming up with New York-based skateboarding brand Poets to release this collaborative iteration of the New Balance Tiago Lemos 1010. Poets was founded by legendary skateboarder Gino Iannucci back in 2002. He grew up in the neighborhood of Poet’s Corner in Long Island, where all the streets are named for famous 19th century poets.
Previewed below, the New Balance Tiago Lemos 1010 is a ’90s-inspired model designed for pro skater Tiago Lemos. The Poets x New Balance Tiago Lemos 1010 keeps it clean and simple. Details include a White mesh and leather upper paired with Sail hairy suede overlays noted on the mudguards, mid panel, and heel counter. Other details on the sneaker include the Black piping on the toe box, heel, and sockliner with matching “N” logos on the sides. Giving it a collab feel is the Poets branding on the heels and insoles atop a Sail Fuel Cell midsole and Black rubber outsole.
The Poets x New Balance Tiago Lemos 1010 is set to release on May 15th exclusively at poetsbrand.com, followed by a wider release on May 19 at select retailers and NewBalance.com.
