While regular 3M has been the familiar standard for reflective materials, New York based DDCLAB and its founder’s Savania Davies-Keiller and Robert Crivello have maintained a penchant for discovering and sourcing new technical fabrics; The result speaks for itself with this New Balance collaboration. Utilizing the slim profile of the 420, almost the entire upper is created in a special Schoeller-Reflex material comprised of microscopic pieces of glass beads. The result is an ultra brilliant and reflective material which also features a strong protection against the elements and scuffs and offering visibility up to 100 meters (approximately 328 feet) away.
