Original Story (09/28/21): After announcing their partnership earlier this year, New Balance and Stone Island have unveiled their first collaborative product.
The creative team of the Italian menswear label and New Balance Tokyo Design Studio come together to reinterpret the RC Elite racing and training shoe, using cutting edge materials and techniques while maintaining New Balance’s heritage aesthetic. Its highly breathable 3D knit upper provides lightweight midfoot structure, strategically adorned with 3D-printed medial and lateral logos. The tooling combines hyper-light FuelCell technology and a carbon fiber plate to offer maximized energy return with propulsive transition and 360-degree functionality.
The Stone Island x New Balance RC ELITE_SI | NB_1 will launch at select Stone Island stores from October 7th through October 10th, followed by an online release on October 12th on stoneisland.com.
