New Balance’s upcoming Loafer variant of the 1906 silhouette has begun to surface in in-line colorways this month. Today, a new brown & navy blue style has joined the model’s launch colors, coming soon.

New Balance is turning heads with their latest update for the 1906 silhouette: turning the former running model into a casual loafer. The new model was originally shown during a Junya Watanabe runway show for Paris Fashion week early this year, but has since emerged in a small assortment of in-line colorways, notably in bright green and a classic NB grey. Now, another style has surfaced to join the launch offerings of NB’s latest unusual silhouette. This pair features a mix of dark neutral shades, using navy blue mesh to form the base of the model and dark brown suede for the overlays. Midsoles and plastic heel cages come in a gunmetal grey shade to complete the look.


New Balance’s in-line colors for the 1906L Loafer have not been announced for release yet, but we hope to see them land sometime in Summer 2024. The latest color, which mixes navy blue and brown across the layered upper, will likely be available from both New Balance and select retailers, with no pricing information available yet. Check out the official images below for a better look, and stay tuned to JustFreshKicks for more sneaker release news.
