The New Balance 850 is on top of the world right now. Reintroduced into the brand’s arsenal last year, the vintage look and subtle design have made it a hit in today’s sneaker world. Now, New Balance is offering up a few tonal colorways of the ’90s runner.
The New Balance 850 isn’t just any other silhouette from the Boston brand’s archives. Originally released in 1996, the ML850 was New Balance’s first big leap into more modern product for a much younger audience. The key feature of the silhouette is the removal of the famous oversized “N” logo that covered every single New Balance shoe at the time. Instead, the brand opted for a much more subtle NB script on both the tongue and heel. Combined with the 850’s sleek and wavy overlays, this made for a much more eye-catching design than anything New Balance had been working on at the time. This week, the fan-favorite silhouette quietly surfaced in a four-pack of new colorways, exclusively on the New Balance Japan website. Each pair is tonal, coming in your choice of grey, navy blue, smoky pink, or off-white, layered throughout the shoe in a multitidue of materials.
