The retro aesthetic is stronger than ever on this colorway.
New Balance is king when it comes to reviving sneakers from the dead. Following the sheer success that is the 2002R, which was brought back 18 years after it initially debuted, the Boston footwear company had a look through its archives this season to check out what other silhouette should make a triumphant return. In the end, they decided to resurrect the 1906R, which launched in 2010. With the release of the thisisneverthat collaboration and a size? project coming in hot, we’re now taking a look at another colorway that is set to launch just around the corner, namely the New Balance 1906R "White Black."
Fully embracing the ‘90s-inspired design, this 1906R is crafted from a combination of mesh and leather and is drenched from heel to toe in a clean white hue. A glossy TPU cage adorns the heel in black, and this hue extends towards the italicized “N” logo that’s detailed with “NLOCK” branding. Underfoot, the midsole has been given a creamy paint job for pre-aged aesthetic, while fiery pops of red grace the front and heel for a contrast that is sure to turn heads wherever you go. This unit combines ABZORB foam with N-ERGY tech for the ultimate balance between comfort and cushioning.
The New Balance 1906R White Black is set to release in 2022. It will drop at New Balance as well as select retailers worldwide, in-store and online. Coming in men's sizing, retail is set at $150. Keep it locked to our Twitter and Mobile App to stay up to date on future releases.
