High-quality leather and breathable mesh make up the majority of the sneaker’s upper, with the former material opting for a brown makeup that promises a custom look after wear. Reflective materials appear at the edge of the toe box as well as via the profile “N” logos and upper heel panels. A touch of red animates New Balance branding on the top of the tongue, not appearing elsewhere on the Rollbar-assisted option. Midsoles and traction work in-tandem for a rather straightforward combination that allows for the upper’s fall-appropriate arrangement to revel in the spotlight. Enjoy official images of the pair ahead, and anticipate a newbalance.com launch soon.
