First Look: AAPE x New Balance 703 Releasing in 2021
New Balance follow-up their recent collaboration with A Bathing Ape, tapping the brand’s popular sub-label AAPE for three colourways of the underrated 703 silhouette.
You’ll have the choice of black, beige, and army green versions of the maximalist silhouette, which is characterised by its outdoor-inspired panels and technical appearance. Each upper is constructed with a combo of suede, leather and mesh, with a robust look that lends itself to BAPE’s militaristic aesthetic. For a bit of contrast, there’s pops of orange that accent both the uppers and the outsoles. As for branding, these are pretty muted by AAPE standards, with logos of both brands arriving on the tongue and insoles. While the collaborative nature of the sneaker may not be obvious, this project still promises to be a hit for fans of the Japanese streetwear label.
No official release date has surfaced for the AAPE x New Balance 703 colourways. However, a drop during the northern Fall season has been slated. Stay tuned for more info!
