New Balance taps Japanese fashion director Akio Hasegawa for debut of its 1906R
New Balance has teamed up with renowned Japanese stylist and fashion director Akio Hasegawa to better commemorate the release of the 1906R.
Hasegawa has created a series of visuals based on the theme of “Past” and “Future.
New Balance will soon release a number of inline colorways of 1906, the first of which is scheduled to hit China on August 19th and August 12th in the rest of Asia.
Comprised of breathable mesh inserts, synthetic panels, and premium nubuck accents, the silhouette celebrates the iconic look of 2000s runners.
This is further amplified with its silver-dominant make-up, which pays homage to one of the 1906’s original colorways. The OG 2002 is honored as well, with its deep greys and navy blue accents translating well to the more intricate upper.
