As we enter 2024, New Balance continues to spotlight its 1906R model, engaging a series of collaborations that have transformed this 2010s mesh runner into a canvas for creative expression. Ronnie Fieg's Kith will join esteemed collaborators like Salehe Bembury, Randomevent, and Action Bronson in reimagining the New Balance 1906R. Alongside this Cream colorway, a Black Burgundy pair is also in the works.
The Kith x New Balance 1906R showcases a refined design approach, featuring a honeycomb mesh pattern on the base layer in clean white. This base is complemented by tumbled leather overlays in a striking metallic silver finish, adding a touch of luxury to the sneaker's aesthetic. The design continues with a light blue TPU heel counter and a tan and cream "N" logo on the midfoot, incorporating subtle color contrasts that enhance the sneaker's overall appeal. Kith's signature touch is evident in the co-branding on the tongue, presented in a blue hue that matches the TPU heel counter, reinforcing the collaboration's identity. The sneaker is grounded with a white and tan foam midsole, ensuring comfort and performance, and is finished with a durable grey rubber outsole.
The Kith x New Balance 1906R Cream will release Spring 2024 through Kith online and in-store, and possibly via New Balance online. As of this writing, the retail price has yet to be announced. Stay tuned to the Sole Retriever mobile app for updates on this release and more from the sneaker and streetwear world.
