The RC-1 definitely can't be mistaken for any other shoe brand yet New Balance's Tokyo Design Studio has done something fresh with this limited edition silhouette. The upper blends knit fabrics and carefully patterned nubuck to create a modern look that still stays true to the New Balance design aesthetic. The shoe features their Abzorb cushioning for comfort while a split detail in the RC-1's sole adds to the modern look of the shoe. 

Available October 6th.
