New Balance introduced the WRPD Runner in 2023, bringing a brand new style to the table. This week, a new “Dusted Grape” purple color scheme has joined their upcoming seasonal releases for April 2024.

The WRPD Runner from New Balance first launched last Fall, bringing another new modern silhouette to their catalog. The shoe is a vast departure from their usual technical-looking running models, and has been slowly dropping in new colors over the past few months. This week, a new “Dusted Grape” color scheme has emerged to join the Spring catalog, adding another vibrant colorway to their offerings. The new style features a black mesh underlay, with lush purple suede overlays. New Balance branding comes in white, with a matching suede heel counter to complete the look.


New Balance’s next lineup of colorways for the WRPD Runner has been scheduled to be released on April 1st, 2024. Featuring the lush “Dusted Grape” purple style, pairs will be available directly from NB as well as select retailers for $150.
