First Look: Casablanca x New Balance XC-72
Release: TBC

Charaf Tajer’s sun-soaked Casablanca label are again linking up with ,New Balance to debut a new silhouette, this time dubbed the NB XC-72.​

Designed by New Balance designer Charlotte Lee (the same talent behind the NB 327), the XC-72 features a similar aesthetic composition to the previous Casablanca x NB 327, Charaf Tajer taking influence from vintage sportswear and the luxurious leisurewear characteristic of the Casablanca label more broadly.

Also built with white leather underlays and grey suede overlays, the XC-72 was originally teased by Casablanca art director Steve Grimes.


Again featuring exaggerated ‘N’ branding, the silhouette will feature as one of the capstones of Casablanca’s upcoming ‘Grand Prix’ premier.

It’s set to be another big year for Casablanca x New Balance collaborations, the dynamic duo also recently teasing the Casablanca x New Balance 327 ‘Monograms’ pack.

No official release dates have yet surfaced, but make sure to keep it locked to Sneaker Freaker for updates.
