“Don’t try to reinvent the wheel.”
This has been proven time and time again by the Filipino footwear and apparel brand World Balance. Since 2019, the brand has looked to their signature Invictus model to carry forward the Philippine sneaker game. Since then, we have seen a multitude of colorways including the Monochrome Collection, and the Secret Fresh Collaboration. While both of these releases maintained the same sneaker silhouette, an introduction of new color schemes bred a fresh new sneaker.
We now experience this once more as vibrant red and mustard hues find their way onto the pair, presenting the Secret Fresh x World Balance Invictus B69 Ketchup and Mustard.
Just like its predecessors, the Invictus B69 Ketchup and Mustard sports an open mesh upper that is partnered with suede panels found on the toe box and heel. The sneaker boasts glossy strips running along the quarter panel and eye stays, providing distinct textures. Underneath is a brown solid gum outsole with a TPU plate. The midsole is made from injected-molded EVA with a Bounce Pad Insole system, adding an extra layer of comfort. Topping it all off, we see Secret Fresh’s iconic logo sitting on top of the sneaker’s tongue.
If you’re looking for a fit rock with this pair, an all-black outfit would be a good option considering the sneaker already showcases strong colors. Not only will an all-black outfit compliment the sneaker, but it will emphasize them, turning necks of sneakerheads and non-sneakerheads alike. This release will be arriving in a limited quantity of 800 pairs, so if you’re looking to get your hands on this saucy sneaker, make sure to act quick!
Ready your calendar for May 22 as the Invictus B69 Ketchup and Mustard will be made available for Php 2,699 at the Secret Fresh store in the Ronac Art Center, and World Balance’s website. With such a low retail price and quality craftsmanship, you can’t go wrong.
