The New Balance 2016 is taking a sophisticated approach with its new “Buffed Brown” construction.
The 2016 model surfaced earlier and it looks like New Balance is bringing a more toned down version of the sneaker to the forefront. The Tokyo Design Studio helped craft the shoe in a buffed brown premium leather. The tongue and front ankle of the shoe features a brown pebbled leather and a lighter, smoother brown leather is applied near the heel. A perforated “N” logo is applied to the sides of the shoe, keeping a subtle approach to this casual sneaker. The shoe is completed with a white Abzorb midsole for added support.
The rich leather of this shoe gives off a timeless feel that any sneakerhead would appreciate. You can pick these up now from retailers like Premier.
