The latest edition of New Balance’s 420 is pulsing with surges of raw athletic energy – while maintaining a calm, street-ready demeanour. In place of the layered leather panels of yesteryear, the newly engineered sneaker is built with fused synthetic panelling on a foundation of breathable mesh – plus there’s a bit of padding laid between the two in all the right places. The slim REVlite midsole should not be underestimated, what it lacks in aggressive stature is made up for with finely tuned foam that supports and cushions. There are three variations of colourway: a stealthy all-black, an angelic white with grey and the crossover between the two, black and white, so you can match one up to whatever is going down.
The New Balance 420 Reengineered is available now from select stockists, as well as on the NB web store.
