New Balance introduces the PRJ 2.0 sneakers which are a new iteration of the previous 1530 footwear model. The latest version boasts a chunky structure and sits atop an ultra-cushioned foundation of the label's Fresh Foam More material. The sneakers are driven by their performance component and the silhouette sits high with an upper inspired by both sci-fi films and space flight adventures.
The overall design is dramatic, translated through the structure and the colorway options. The aesthetic is fashion-forward, boasting futuristic design accents, pushing for functionality with the aforementioned Fresh Foam More. The bright colorways are complete in geometric paneling and grid patterns, as well as some leather accents. The tongue is decorated with graphic details and a bright contrasting lacing system.
