Arguably one of their finest collaborations to date, Japanese retailer atmos teams up with Secret Base on a new pair of New Balance M996′s. Taking on a black and gold colorway, the shoes are finished beautifully with a tiger stripe motif on the uppers, inspired by the tiger of the sexagenary cycle of this year. The tiger theme is also taken to the insoles, creating an intricate, tattoo style design by Chris Trevino, which celebrates Japanese culture. Look for a release come mid-November 2010.
