2014 marks the 10th anniversary of hanon shop’s collaboration history with New Balance, and in celebration, they take a step away from their usual running models to work on one of New Balance’s first tennis shoes.  They teamed up with 3 more of New Balance’s earliest partners, Sneakersnstuff, Firmament, and 24 Kilates to produce a special edition of the Court 300 tennis shoe.

The CT300 was first released in 1979, and features an extremely lightweight upper, which consists of closed mesh and suede overlays. It is also built with superior cushioning and the unique sole unit of polyurethane and encapsulated gum rubber provides great durability.

Much like 2006 and 2012, hanon have revisited the Northern Sole theme that has proved to be so successful for them, and they’ve drawn inspiration from the bright colours of patches and album covers associated with the Northern Soul music scene. The shoe has been named the ‘Phoenix’ and the colourway is a mixture of rich purple, soft grey, and blue pig suede, which is then all offset with closed mesh in dark marine.
