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 brighter colorways of the ’90s runner for Summer.

New Balance has been keeping up with fresh releases of the retro 850 runner ever since it returned early last year, dropping new colorways ever few weeks. Once again, this month’s pairs come to us via an early look from New Balance Japan, which shows off three new colorways of the fan-favorite silhouette. The first color scheme dresses the shoe in simple white & black, with lighter grey overlays for a tonal appearance. The second look blankets the shoe almost entirely in black, using grey mesh and bright green accents to complete the look. Finally, the third takes cues from the original color scheme from another 997 offshoot, the 997H, adding blue and pink suede overlays to a white mesh base.


New Balance’s latest colorways of the fan-favorite retro 850 dropped earlier this week, exclusively via the brand’s Japanese website, though we anticipate a more global release sometime in the coming weeks, with pairs available in the US for approximately $120. In the meantime, check out the official images below for a better look, and stay tuned to JustFreshKicks for more New Balance release information.
