Starting at the top of the shoe is a large “NB” tongue tag, complemented by a ripstop heel tab and mesh collars. The shoe comes with suede panels around the heel and toecap as well as full-grain leather along the quarters, eyelets and toebox for a variety of textures. New Balance’s “N” logo is placed at the sidewalls, beneath translucent overlays, while “New Balance” branding is stamped at the rear quarters. All of these features are supported by an articulated ENCAP midsole offering durability and comfort.
