New Balance 2016 – A First Look

The NEW BALANCE 2016 gets introduced with a duo of clean monotone colourways on the minimalist and streamlined uppers.

NEW BALANCE have been working hard to update and modernise models from their archives, with technologies such as REVlite and Fresh Foam, and now they are releasing a completely new model, which still feature the DNA of previous models. The stand out feature of the 2016 is arguably the fact that the toe, midfoot and quarter panels have been fused into a single smooth panel, which is similar to what we saw on the Deconstructed version of the 1500, but taken one step further. Even the side ‘N’ logos haven’t escaped the minimalist treatment, with the more traditional choice of panels or embroidered outlines ditched for a series of perforations. The rest of the upper takes on a look similar to that of the 997, with pebbled leather on the tongue and lace stay panel. One of the other unusual touches is the additional padding at certain pressure points on the lining, which is definitely something we want to try out. Rounding things off down below is a pretty streamlined ABZORB midsole and a low profile outsole, which work really well with the cleaner look. The initial drop includes a choice of two colourways, with either grey suede or black leather covering the majority of the upper, with tonal pebbled and full grain leather panels to add some detail. Streamlined silhouettes are nothing new, but these still manage to bring something new to the market.

The NEW BALANCE 2016 has already started to drop in the US, so expect to see them here soon. Make sure to keep checking back with us for updates. In the meantime you can check our the current NEW BALANCE range via the banner below.
