Few personalities merge the worlds of music, culinary arts, and sneaker culture as seamlessly as Action Bronson. After crafting one of 2023’s top collaborations with New Balance on the 990v6, Bronson continues to surprise his fanbase with mouthwatering sneaker drops. His Instagram, an avenue for both culinary and sneaker teases, recently lit up with an early look at a blue iteration of the 1906R, fueling discussions across sneaker forums and social media.
Drawing inspiration from his previous hits like the Lapiz Lazuli 990v6, Bronson unveils a striking blue-themed version of the 1906R. At its core, the silhouette remains true to New Balance's iconic design, but Bronson's influence is palpable. Moving away from the greens and earth tones that previously adorned his first 1906R, the Baklava Blue offers a refreshing splash of color that is bound to turn heads. Notable detailing includes the distinctive Baklava branding sitting proudly atop the tongue. A vibrant blue foam midsole elevates the sneaker’s base, borrowed ingeniously from the 860v2, and it all rests on a classic gum rubber outsole.
The Action Bronson x New Balance 1906R Baklava Blue doesn’t have a set release date, though it’s likely we see the pair in 2023. Once released, it will be available through New Balance, Action Bronson's website, and possibly select retailers online and in-store. Pricing details remain under wraps for now.
