The dad shoe wave isn’t quite over.
It’s certainly halted, and in certain ways shifted, but it’s definitely not over.
New Balance has been a towering figure in this sneaker movement, outlining its aesthetics, shaping and housing a history that lends credence to the overall theme.
Their all-new WX608 RW1 has all the makings of a resonate dad shoe. Chunky in width, paneled to perfection, and dressed in that traditional leather that made other brand sneakers like the Air Monarch seem, well, dad-ish. That and the legions of mall walkers who laced them up.
This initial colorway in white and vanilla pares down the shades keeping things plain jane. Take a closer look at the New Balance WX608 RW1 below and cop your pair now at Foot District.
