After the silhouette was unveiled through a Snow Peak collaboration, New Balance and its Tokyo Design Studio line have prepared two new Niobium Concept 2 colorways. The sandal and mule hybrid is heavily inspired by trail running, with a rugged aesthetic complemented by the asymmetric sole unit and a Vibram outsole.

The silhouette now arrives in two colorways for the “Water and Dirt Trail” pack, inspired by dirt tracks and lakes you might discover while hiking. The water-inspired colorway comes in a dark “Indigo” tone, which is offset by green detailing on the footbed and strap. For the dirt design, New Balance Tokyo Design Studio has dressed the shoe in a light brown “Incense” color, surrounded by hits of “Chocolate Brown.”

Other details across the shoes — including geometric patterned webbing — is inspired by vintage outdoors garments. Both colorways feature an upper constructed using breathable mesh and synthetic leather, while the sole unit is taken from the Fresh Foam Hierro running sneaker.

Take a look at the “Water and Dirt Trail” pack in the gallery above, and expect the two Tokyo Design Studio sneakers to arrive at the New Balance web store on July 9. The two colorways will be priced at $199 USD. THe capsule will release in Europe on July 23.

In other footwear news, New Balance is preparing an archival 990v2 “MADE 990 Version Series” release.
