New Balance




The days when performance and heritage ran on purely parallel tracks, never to meet, are long gone. In fact, designing for a field that demands innovation functions a lot like any other compulsion with a law of diminishing returns. The longer you do it, the more you have to push the envelope to achieve the same thrills as before. A new project from New Balance, the Tokyo Design Studio, follows this line of thinking all the way to the ultimate fusion of performance and style.

As a longtime hotbed of New Balance fandom, the working relationship between New Balance and Japan is a well-established one. The Tokyo Design Studio takes this mutual admiration to a new level. Developed and designed in Japan, technological innovation and a progressive design sensibility are interpreted through the distinctly Japanese lenses of authentic history, painstaking craftsmanship and exacting quality.

The second release from the Tokyo Design Studio revisits the RC_1 silhouette that debuted in October. The RC_1 Leather opts for a different traditional to modern design ratio. The Reveal, visible ENCAP technology construction serves as the base for a stretch knit and leather upper (vegtan on the Tan variant and nubuck on the White) rendered in subtle, refined tonal colorways, for a perfectly harmonious expression of the performance technology and casual style that have made New Balance a fixture at all speeds, for so many years.
