After making its debut at the SS23 Paris runway show, the Junya Watanabe MAN x New Balance Tokyo Design Studio Nobium Concept 2 is finally preparing to launch. This silhouette was first introduced in 2021 and immediately garnered attention for its versatile function.
This experimental silhouette comes dressed in a combination of black premium leathers, lightweight mesh, tough suede, geometric webbing with FIDLOCK magnetic buckles, and high-shine reflectors. The model combines utility and transformation with “JWCdGMAN” heel straps that can be removed, transforming the shoe from sandals to mules. The upper sits atop a Vibram midsole, providing comfort and durability across a variety of terrain.
The Junya Watanabe MAN x New Balance Tokyo Design Studio Nobium Concept 2 releases on October 1, 2022. The retail price is listed at ¥64,900 JPY (approximately $449 USD). To purchase, visit Junya Watanabe MAN retailers. For more sneaker news and release dates, follow @NiceKicks on Instagram.
