Following a spectacular array of color editions such as the Storm Blue and Bone/Multi, New Balance introduces its latest XC-72 sneaker in a warm Washed Henna.

The New Balance’s XC-72 was met with excitement when it dropped as part of the brand’s Shifted collection earlier in September. It’s striking design plays on the theme of retro-futurism where designer Charlotte Lee found unique inspiration in the concept cars of the 1970s. Lee explains, “if I was a designer in the 70’s what would I create as new balance’s concept car? I took inspiration and specific elements from the past and reimagined them for today’s consumer.” Soon after the sneaker’s release, it became the subject to Casablana and New Balance’s on-going collaboration where it sit perfectly within its racing themed Fall/ Winter 2021 collection.

In the latest iteration of the New Balance XC-72, the sneaker arrives in deep red tones. Mirroring the dark staining effect of henna, where the colorway draws its inspiration from, the sneaker layers bursts of red on top of each other. On the body, a lighter pink is the background to the deeper toned overlay and laces while the heel tab comes in the darkest shade of red. A soft orange stripe is incorporated through the toe box and along the tongue, enhancing the sneaker’s automative theme. New Balance’s “N” emblem is placed on top of the layers in a crisp white that makes the warm color palette pop.
