Despite the fact that it’s only been on the market for less than a year now, the New Balance 57/40 has already take the sneaker world by storm with the release of striking collaborations and a barrage of GR colorways. After recently being clad with sturdy CORDURA materials, the lifestyle-centric model is now returning to the spotlight in the form of an understated gray and orange colorway.

Multiple materials are responsible for making up the uppers of this iteration. Underlays are formatted with darker gray synthetic materials that bear all-over and tonal grid patterns, while the “N” logos and the overlays across the forefoot and heels come fashioned with a buttery suede fabric that is swathed in a lighter shade of gray. It’s the fluorescent accents here that purloin most of the attention. Pops of neon orange poke out on the interior of the tongues, on the forefoot, collars, heels and heightened molds on the midsole. The remaining components of the chunky sole unit is dialed to a charcoal gray hue and the chiseled outsole piece comes coated in all-black.

Select retailers like Mita have these available now for ¥19,800 ($175 USD).
