A breathable knit is 3D printed and makes the base of the upper with jagged TPU overlays giving off an eroded and deconstructed look, similarly seen on the New Balance 2002R “Refined Future” Pack. Stone Island branding is seen on the toebox in red on the left sneaker and tongue with the right using New Balance and their Tokyo Design Studio branding in the same locations. The N insignia is seen on the lateral side with it partially cut off and the FuelCell midsole is featured in white as well. The midsole features a full-length carbon fiber plate for energy return and propulsion and cutouts in the midsole to reduce weight.
The Stone Island x New Balance Tokyo Design Studio RC Elite SI launch globally on October 23, 2021. The retail price is set at $220. You’ll be able to purchase these sneakers from select stores and the Stone Island website. For more New Balance releases and updates on all your favorite sneakers, follow @NiceKicks on Instagram.
