atmos has already introduced seasonal outdoors-inspired sneakers, but the Japanese retailer is only getting started with its warm weather drops. Its latest collaboration recruits New Balance for a special set of 850 running shoes, with a color palette that draws from camping amidst nature.
The retro runner boasts a variety of earth-toned touches amidst its rugged suede and mesh upper, juxtaposing pale green and warm moss tones with sharp orange and yellow accents, recalling a warm campfire and cozy tents. Splashes of blue on the outsole and sockliner recall the streams that weave through leafy forests, hidden beneath a desaturated green midsole that takes cues from leaf beds. Meanwhile, single silver accent above the toebox slightly increases visibility, gently offsetting the shoe’s organic aesthetic.
