New Balance lifestyle collaborations have become some of the most coveted commodities in this day and age, and the Boston sportswear brand will look to capitalize on this formula even more throughout the rest of 2022. One partner that it’s set to reunite with this season is contemporary fashion brand thisisneverthat, and after the two produced a two-pronged 860 V2 capsule earlier this year, the duo is now shifting its attention to the New Balance 1906R.

Early images of the pair have now surfaced onto our radar and they reveal all of its up-close details. A majority of upper halves are done up with various shades of gray. The mesh underlays are done up in a muted shade as while a majority of the overlays are splashed with metallic silver and heel pieces and N logos arrive with a charcoal exterior. Toe box overlays are coated with a tealish blue hue, while blemishes are scattered throughout the base to achieve a worn-in aesthetic. To further pronounce its vintage vibe, the midsole units have been plastered with creamy outers.

Enjoy a detailed look at the pair above while you wait on the Korean imprint to announce its release date.

Elsewhere in sneakers, the New Balance 550 was recently revealed with a neutral-heavy palette.
