New Balance 1600 "Japan Exclusive"ebay.com
When it comes to retailer exclusive collabs, Japan’s atmos is arguably at the top of the game. The Japanese retailer has released projects with footwear heavyweights Nike, adidas, ASICS, and of course, New Balance. The duo has reunited once more, bringing us a new iteration of the New Balance 1600.
Dressed in a grey and navy palette, the offering is crafted with a mix of leather and mesh materials. The body is layered in a grey hue, which traverses down to the toe box. Hints of navy appear on the ankles, mid-panel, and toe. For additional contrast, shades of white are added to the toe, ankles, and mid panels, followed by gold branding on the N logos, tongue, toe-box, and heel. To wrap up the design, the silhouette rests atop a sole unit mimicking the upper’s color scheme.
