Momentum has been on New Balance‘s side in recent memory thanks to the brand’s hot streak of collaborative efforts. The Boston sportswear brand has run in the fall season with a flurry of new projects made alongside partners Joe Freshgoods, Aimé Leon Dore, Malbon Golf and more, and now it’s reconvening with AURALEE for a duo of XC-72 collaborations.

This collaboration first walked the runway back in January, but its actual release variations bear subtle differences in their palette. Ryota Iwai — the designer behind the Tokyo-based label — still keeps the monochromatic motifs intact, but he’s made tweaks to their shadings. What was once a lighter tan colorway has now been modified to a more fall-friendly “Dark Brown” iteration and its release sibling has been dialed to a more muted shade of blue. Smooth leather underlays and hairy suede overlay materials are utilized to formulate the upper halves, and AURALEE branding comes embellished to the left inserts of each pair.

AURALEE is set to release this duo on October 13 for ¥19,800 (approx. $136 USD) and you can check out the official campaign images above.

In other news, a duo of suede-infused New Balance 550 colorways have been revealed.
