Alpha Industries Teams Up With New Balance for Their Latest Collab

Military vibes meet sportswear style, excellence ensues

Alpha Industries has never shied away from a good collab, counting everyone from NASA to Stutterheim to Vetements to Playboy as past partners. Their latest, a recently-dropped capsule in partnership with New Balance, adds yet another chapter to their legacy of bangin’ brand mashups.

The centerpiece of the collection is a take on NB’s quintessential 574, done in muted, military-esque tones (a hallmark of Alpha’s aesthetic that they come by honestly — the brand was originally established as a clothing contractor to the United States military in 1959) that also boasts the now-iconic Alpha Industries “REMOVE BEFORE FLIGHT” red hangtag as well as a grey hangtag with New Balance branding. Unfortunately but unsurprisingly, like pretty much any notable New Balance collab, this one sold out almost immediately — it bears noting though that it can be found for a pretty reasonable price on StockX.

Still readily available on the Alpha Industries site, however, are the accompanying sportswear pieces that we wholeheartedly co-sign. All done in deep military green, there’s a quarter-zip nylon windbreaker (and accompanying nylon pant for my fellow “matching kit” enthusiasts), as well as a hoodie and T-shirt with embroidered type and removable velcro patches — solid understated touches that elevate the pieces beyond your traditional fare.

History dictates that the rest of the capsule will soon go the way of the shoes, however, so best to get on it while the gettin’s good.
