Japanese Label AURALEE Release a New Balance R_C2 With Gore-Tex Lining
Release: 9 March 2019

Japanese label AURALEE have taken their minimalist approach to New Balance’s Tokyo Design Studio, coming through with a special R_C2 sneaker that is as utilitarian as it is luxurious.

Blessed with an earthy sepia-based colourway, the running sneaker gets a beige midsole and similar-hued ripstop nylon upper made up of a unique cage, laces and sockliner. The addition of Gore-Tex lining provides breathable waterproofing, while reflective accents ensure you’ll make a statement once the sun goes down. Last but not least, an EVA ENCAP sole unit makes sure the comfort matches the classy looks.

The AURALEE x New Balance R_C2 releases as part of a collaborative capsule on March 9 via New Balance Japan and at select Japanese AURALEE stockists.
