New Balance’s recent lifestyle offerings have taken the sneaker world by storm, from the 327 to the more recent return of the 550. Now, the Boston brand is ready to introduce another classic-inspired look, the RC30.

Boston footwear brand New Balance has designed a a fresh casual sneaker for 2022, building on the popularity of their other recent new introductions, which include the 327 and XC-72. Seemingly following down the same path, the new RC30 is a sleek model constructed from a nylon base with shaggy suede overlays, a perfect combination for Summer. Initially reported as a collaboration with multimedia artist Donald Glover, who previously worked with adidas on his signature footwear, the blog posts and specifically the Net-a-Porter editorial naming them as a DG project have since been scrubbed from the internet. While we would be interested in seeing Glover team up with New Balance, the ‘Sea Salt’ and ‘Golden Hour’ colorways seen here have no branding or marking that would indicate as much. 


New Balance’s upcoming RC30 has not yet been scheduled for release, though they are expected to launch sometime in the coming weeks. Originally thought to be a collaboration with Donald Glover, the new silhouette will likely be avialable from both NB and select retailers, with a price tag somewhere in the $120+ range. Check out the early images below for a better look, and stay tuned to JustFreshKicks for more New Balance release news.
