After going on a six year hiatus, New Balance decided to give its fashionable and functional Rainier silhouette another run on the market in 2022. Since then, it has released in a flurry of inline colorways and even seen collaborative initiatives alongside AimÃ© Leon Dore, and now the former is set to expand its catalog with another entry this spring. The latest to arrive is the New Balance Rainier â€œBlack/Macadamia Nutâ€ colorway which has just been released via select European retailers.
In a similar fashion to the modelâ€™s recently-unveiled caramel brown colorway, this newest installment is styled with a more sophisticated presentation. The base layerâ€™s overlays are treated with a premium, smooth black leather material and complemented by tonal canvas panels across the toe boxes and collars. Hiking style shoe laces add a touch of playfulness as they are fashioned with red and black stripes, and these come locked down by metallic silver D-rings. Down below, the trail-ready sole pieces are brought to life with full â€œMacadamia Nutâ€ exteriors for some neutral contrast.
Interested in copping? Retailers like Asphalt Gold have these available now for â‚¬169 (approx. $184 USD).
Elsewhere in the world of sneakers, Action Bronson has teased his New Balance 990v6 â€œLapis Lazuliâ€ collaboration.
