Over the years, United Arrows has cemented its status as a prominent collaborator in the sneaker world. With their numerous collaborations with New Balance, they've consistently delivered designs that resonate deeply with the Japanese market. Their latest endeavor, under the Beauty and Youth label, takes on the New Balance 9060, a silhouette that has garnered significant attention since its inception in 2022.
The Beauty and Youth x New Balance iteration of the 9060 put a fresh spin on the silhouette, displaying a sophisticated mix of materials. The upper is dominated by shades of black, covering the premium suede and breathable mesh. Subtle tan details trace the contours of the iconic "N" logo, adding depth and character to the design. Complementary white elements further accentuate the "N" logo while also highlighting the "NB" emblem on the heel, the vamp's distinct "N," and the 9060 branding on the tongue. This harmonic blend of colors sits gracefully atop the 9060's signature chunky midsole, presented in a mix of white and tan. Finalizing the look is a durable black rubber outsole, ensuring that the sneaker is as functional as it is stylish.
The Beauty and Youth x New Balance 9060 was released on November 3, 2023, exclusively through United Arrows online and select retailers. Offered in men's sizing, these sneakers come at a retail price of 22,000 Yen (approximately $150 USD). This release is considered a pre-order, with pairs shipping out in December 2023.
