Over the past few months, New Balance has been going all out with the 1906R. A silhouette that was first introduced back in 2010, its chunky aesthetics and retro styling makes it the perfect sneaker to rock in 2022, in an era when everything vintage is in fashion. After teaming up with South Korea's Cho Nadan, Choi Jonkyu, and Park Inwook for the thisisneverthat x New Balance 1906R, the Boston-based sportswear giant is now flying to Japan for the atmos x New Balance 1906R "Tokyo Dimension" - and here's everything that you need to know.
Inspired by the Asian metropolis' world-renowned street style, Hommyo Hidefumi's take on the retro runner features a light gray mesh construction with textured leather paneling running across the upper. An intricately-designed heel counter features around the back for extra support, and the "N" logo works in tandem with the lacing system for a sleek and seamless look and feel.
Elsewhere, bold purple accents descend upon the tongue and N-ERGY midsole, which has been dipped in a speckled cream hue for an old school vibe. This is then finished off with a black rubber outsole, making these the perfect sneaker to rock on the daily.
The atmos x New Balance 1906R "Tokyo Dimension" releases on September 23rd exclusively in Asia. If you took a L, it'll be available on Ox Street very soon, so make sure you keep your eyes peeled!
