New Balance is dropping a new, vibrant colorway for its WRPD Runner. Made for those who embrace the boldness, the “Lightning” colorway stands out with its striking hue.

The WRPD runner is constructed with a black mesh upper and eye-catching yellow suede overlay. The Phantom “N” logos are prominently placed on the medial part of the shoe and sits atop a two-tone FuelCell midsole. Known for its comfort and durability, the shoe’s thick soles give it an added futuristic look. The laces are highlighted in brown to complement parts of the midsole while the inner lining is in white. The shoe sits atop a a grey and black rubber outsole to round out the design.
