The sneakerboot sector is rapidly expanding, due in part to a number of brands gearing up for the oncoming winter in the Northern Hemisphere. New Balance have made their most adventurous move yet with the Niobium Boot. The cuffed silhouette bears some resemblance to the iconic 580, yet fortifies the silhouette with a noticeably more rugged composition. With Gore-Tex insulation and a zipper opening, the sneakerboot is equipped to take on inclement weather with ease. Finished with a heavy-duty lacing system and a dynamically designed traction outsole, the Niobium actually looks good (which isn’t always the case with adventure wear).
The Niobium Boot is available now from select stockists including Extra Butter.
