New Balance has had a lot of success with their 2020 releases, and there’s no denying that many of their silhouettes are taking over the streetwear scene. Suede uppers, retro designs and subdued color schemes have become the New Balance trademark, and we’re embracing this new aesthetic.
Today, let’s take a look at some of the best recent New Balance sneakers that embody the new hit elements!
Ronnie Fieg x New Balance 1300CL Capsule
Following the success of earlier sneakers this year, New Balance teamed up with the owner of KITH for a new collection featuring suede.
Upon first glance, the two pairs come with peaceful and coordinated color schemes. Suede materials dominate the upper to set themselves apart from other brands.
To express his fondness for the “Steel Blue” colorway, Ronnie Fieg makes the R_C 1300 and 1300 silhouettes over in this exact color story. Both pair has a blue suede upper mixed with textile and complemented by neutral-colored leather panels.
Tying the two together further will be the salmon Vibram outsole that supplies further comfort and durability. Overall, the capsule gives a sense of serenity with its color and material choices.
Upcoming Unnamed New Balance 992
Seeing as retro throwback is gaining popularity, New Balance will be releasing a 992 colorway that emits early 2000s energy.
In this iteration, the simplistic yet very nostalgic color combination of navy blue and white dresses the upper. White mesh lays under the smooth leather panels to further enhance the retro appearance.
Paying homage to the 2000s aesthetic, we can’t miss the chunky sole underfoot. The two-toned midsole is enveloped by a durable Ndurance outsole in black, completing the pair’s neutral and poised color story.
With no further news on this upcoming 992, we can just keep a look out for updates from New Balance.
New Balance 327 “Undyed”
Released a while ago, the New Balance 327 “Undyed” brings something refreshing to the table.
As an addition to New Balance’s sustainable sneaker lineup, the “Undyed” literally comes with materials in their natural states. Taking away the pigmentation and coloring processes, making the shoes saves water and energy.
The two-tone upper features a more washed appearance, with light blue suede panels sitting atop undyed ivory canvas. An oversized “N” on the lateral side serves as branding.
Topping off the design is the timeless combination of white midsole and rubber outsole. People always say “less is more”, and this rendition of the New Balance 327 is just a shining example.
