Colorful Mixed-Material Sneakers

New Balance's 9060 Sneaker Gets a 'Multi-Color' Makeover for Fall

— September 26, 2022 — Fashion
New Balance recently unveiled a new ‘9060’ sneaker silhouette in cooperation with Joe Freshgoods in two ‘Baby Blue and ‘Cream’ colorways. Now, the silhouette has returned for a more general audience, boasting a ‘Multi-Color’ makeup that is sure to give any outfit an appropriate pop of color. The sneaker boasts a mixed material upper consisting of mesh and smooth leather in light blue, green, red, dark navy, grey, and black.

Red accents decorate the panel overlays, while silver decorates the space below the laces. The New Balance ‘N’ logo comes dipped in a bold red shade with black contrast stitching, and Wavy ABZORB and SBS-equipped sole units complete the design.

The New Balance 9060 in ‘Multi-Color’ will debut in the near future via New Balance for $150 USD.
