New Balance invites Japanese stylist Akio Hasegawa to revamp the New Balance 1906R. This silhouette is an updated version of the New Balance 1906, which first debuted in 2009. After thisneverthat revived the silhouette earlier this year, it seems that New Balance has full intention of bringing back the sneaker in a big way.
Made with premium mesh and dynamic overlays, this New Balance 1906R has a brown nubuck base with a foiled mid panel. The thick charcoal mesh takes over the toebox and tongue. The signature New Balance “N” is made with extra laces looped through the letter. Rather than the original midsole, the sneaker is complete with the midsole unit from the New Balance 860v2.
This New Balance 1906R is set to release in Asia on August 12, 2022. A China release date is set for August 19th. The retail price is unknown. To purchase, visit NewBalance.com and select retailers. For more sneaker news and release dates, follow @NiceKicks on Instagram.
