Japanese label Snow Peak has reunited with New Balance‘s Tokyo Design Studio, this time focusing on the R_C4 Mid silhouette. The collaboration mixes outdoor elements to chime with Snow Peak’s company mission — “connecting people and nature, and people and people, to contribute to a recovery of humanity” — and New Balance’s footwear expertise.

The wide variety of technical outdoor elements feature throughout the “Triple Black” sneaker, while the R_C4 silhouette recalls the first collaboration between the two brands from October 2019.

The R_C4 Mid is constructed using a Cordura rip-stop upper, which works alongside a waterproof and breathable GORE-TEX membrane. Other features include a magnetic FIDLOCK buckle closure, a VIBRAM outsole and an ENCAP REVEAL midsole with foam ABZORB cushioning. Lastly, the sneaker is finished with webbed “N” logo, reflective rope laces, a neoprene tongue and collar and a co-branded insert.

Take a look at the latest Snow Peak x New Balance Tokyo Design Studio R_C4 Mid in the gallery above. The “Triple Black” colorway is due to release on February 19, and will be available from Snow Peak web stores around the world, including U.K., USA, Japan and Korea.
