If 2022 was the year of the 2002R, New Balance wants 2023 to be the year of the 1906R. Over the past few months, the Boston-based footwear brand has been working double time on its 1906R silhouette. Originally introduced back in 2010, the retro runner is now back and better than ever, with collaborations from atmos and N.HOOLYWOOD x INVINCIBLE in the pipeline. Now, another must-have colorway has been unveiled in the form of the New Balance 1906R Cordura "Olive," and here's everything that we know so far.
Dipped in a full olive hue that will work with whatever fit you decide to throw on it, the base of this New Balance sneaker is made from a Cordura-infused ballistic mesh which gives it waterproof and windproof properties. Soft leather wraps around the rest of the upper for a premium look and feel, and around the back, you'll find a TPU counter that offers unparalleled support with every step. The signature "N" logo on the lateral and medial sides works as part of the lacing system, and underfoot, you'll find a intricately designed N-ERGY midsole. Of course, you can't talk about this 1906R without mentioning the "Cordura" tags that's stitched on the heel in black.
The New Balance 1906R Cordura Olive is rumored to be releasing in 2022 in men's sizes, with retail set at $150. Expected to drop at New Balance and select retailers online and in physical locations, this is no doubt the ultimate sneaker for the Fall.
