In 2018, New Balance coined “Grey Day” as a tribute to the significance of its drab grey sneakers. There aren’t many sneakers out there that can hold their own against a pair of crisp grey suede dad shoes, which have been the NB brand’s mainstay since it was founded.
Introducing the New Balance XC72 in Marblehead and Rain Cloud, a modern racing-style shoe, released on May 21st. Contrasting tones on the suede overlay at the toe, leather base, large N logo, and rubber sole and heel create high contrast on the upper. Wouldn’t a smattering of crimson red or pink give them a “Pigeon” vibe?
On May 21st, New Balance will sell these XC-72s for $120 if you’re interested.
