New Balance Dresses Its Waterproof Rainer Sneaker in "Turtledove"
Complemented with a GORE-TEX outer and Vibram outsole.
New Balance has just presented its latest iteration of the Rainer silhouette in an understated “Turtledove” colorway — and it serves as a follow-up to the Rainer’s latest collaboration with Aime Leon Dore.
It’s no secret that New Balance has various unique models packed away in its archive — such as the 9060 and 650 — however the Rainer sneaker is designed to serve a different purpose than the everyday wardrobe rotator. For example, the shoe is an updated version of an iconic 1982 trail shoe and it’s designed to be able to take on off-road terrains and long outdoor excursions.
Crafted from breathable GORE-TEX fabrications, the sneaker’s waterproof outer is also complemented by Vibram outsole that’s designed to provide additional grip on the trails. For the overall design, the Rainer is dressed in different shades of cream, while the paneled detailing sets the foundations for a neutral N logo on the lateral side.
Additionally, the collars are fitted with smooth leather and are once again covered in the same “Turtledove” hue. To round everything off, the sole pieces come accessorized in all-over speckles.
You can take a closer look at the latest New Balance Rainer above and it is available now on the official New Balance website for £150 (approx. $170 USD).
