Originally revealed in collaboration with Casablanca, New Balance is now set to release several color options of their latest XC-72 model. One of those includes this “Multi-Color” offering.
The New Balance XC-72 is the brand’s most contemporary and progressive offering within the Shifted collection, which also includes the retro-inspired 327 and 237 styles. Shifting from the traditional divisions of gender and designed through progressive style, the XC-72 is a unisex model with a tri-textured CR and outsole that offers a modern interpretation of the brand’s retro-runner silhouettes.
The XC-72 blends high quality materials and modern trends with nostalgia-inducing details such as a squared toe inspired by 1970s concept car designs. Additionally, the style uses chrome-free leather and suede, which utilizes better chemistry as a part of the brand’s larger commitment to sustainability.
Check out the official photos below, and look for the New Balance XC-72 “Multi-Color” to release on September 4th at select retailers and NewBalance.com. The retail price tag is set at $130 USD.
