Debuted earlier this year, Junya Watanabe MAN revealed an expansive Fall/Winter 2023 collection during Paris Fashion Week. Maintaining a singular monochromatic color scheme of a sleek and mostly black hued collection, the season featured a variety of collaborations with Carhartt WIP, Palace, Levi’s and New Balance.
The New Balance 650 collaboration is now available in two black iterations. One of the pairs arrive in a leather and suede construction. Dressed in an all-black upper, the co-branded Junya Watanabe MAN and New Balance co-branded logo on the tongue are also highlighted in black. While most of the upper is suede, the heel collar is in leather while the rest of the shoe sits atop a white midsole and outsole to round out the design.
The other pair of 650 is in all-black, constructed in leather and perforated mesh throughout the entire shoe. The tongue tage is highlighted in a shade of dark grey while the branding is in black. The shoe sits atop a black rubber sole to round it all off. Both insoles are lined in blue, similar to that of the color scheme seen on the runway.
The Junya Watanabe MAN x New Balance 650 collaborations will be on sale starting on October 6 in select retailers.
