Modeled after one of the popular 3D first person shooter games of the ’90s, Star Fox, the Bodega x New Balance 577 HYPRCAT takes its inspiration from the game’s outer space setting and vintage graphics. In the midst of the Sega vs. Nintendo wars, game developers squeezed in every graphical improvement they could. Inspired by Nintendo’s push to include 3D effects in their games, our designers included similar polygon graphics into this project, specifically on the tongue and sole. Click through for more design and release info, as well as some more visual knowledge.
The HYPRCAT features gray perforated nubuck suede on the toe and tongue, and traditional suede on the heel cup. The heel tab and parts of the mid panel are a soft purple suede making for a nice contrast throughout. The classic ‘N’ logo is a yellow stitched suede on top of a smooth donegal fleck material with a variety of colors throughout. The front portion of the midsole and the inner neoprene lining is a soft pink along with magenta stripes on the laces. The out sole is a light translucent blue.
