Color-blocked in three separate areas, this model sees soft palettes of grey, brown and black, paneled at the heel, sides and forefoot. Light grey mesh fabrics begin at the upper collars and work its way over the tongue, acting as the base for a silver-toned US flag motif and tonal laces. The heel counter comes in a rich ecru tone, followed by dusty cedar brown at the midfoot – accented with New Balance’s 3M “N” logo – and black at the toe box. The muted uppers sit atop a technical ENCAP® midsole, offering support and durability, while the sneaker’s dual-density collar foam maximizes comfort.
