In the dynamic realm of fashion collaborations, Junya Watanabe is set to make waves in 2024. The recent Paris Fashion Week witnessed the announcement of several exciting partnerships, notably featuring iconic names such as Levi’s and Palace. Amidst these noteworthy alliances, one particular design has stolen the spotlight – the Junya Watanabe MAN x New Balance 1906 Loafer.
The New Balance 1906 takes on a sophisticated new identity as it is reimagined into a loafer. Adorned in a two chic black and white colour schemes, the upper part of the shoe seamlessly incorporates the classic loafer style, boasting sleek leather and a distinctive penny toe segment. Retaining its authentic charm, the design preserves the well-known toe guards, midsole, and sole of the original model.
What sets this collaboration apart are the added touches that catch the eye. Look out for the Junya Watanabe MAN label proudly displayed on the tongue, embodying the unique identity of this collaboration. Additionally, a subtle New Balance label discreetly graces the side of the loafer. A testament to the craftsmanship of both brands. The final flourish comes in the form of a black outsole, creating a visually striking contrast that elevates the overall design.
The release of the Junya Watanabe MAN x New Balance 1906 Loafer is eagerly anticipated for the autumn of 2024. Though the exact release date remains unconfirmed at this time. However, you can take a glimpse at the current range of New Balance sneakers available for purchase via the banner below…
