New Balance Niobium C_2 x Snow Peak
The Niobium concept shoes by Tokyo Design Studio New Balance (TDS) are based on the concepts of utility and transformable.
Following on from last year’s release of the Niobium boot, the Niobium Concept 2 is the ultimate two-way outdoor sandal, featuring the sole unit from New Balance’s best-selling trail running shoe, Fresh Foam Hierro, and a detachable heel strap that enables the transition from sandals to mules.
The sole unit, with its asymmetrical, rugged form, improves stability and shock absorption, while the Fresh Foam X provides flexibility through a honeycomb structure of cells of varying sizes. The addition of a Vibram® Mega Grip outsole, which boasts exceptional durability and grip, provides outstanding traction — even on rough roads.
The collaboration with Snow Peak is based on the theme of Home⇄Camp, with the process of walking from the paved road (home) to the field (camp) inspiring the adoption of an asphalt black and olive green colourway. In addition, the upper has been updated with a breathable mesh material, while the strap and toes are made from highly durable synthetic leather.
The Fidlock magnet buckle allows for easy removal, even in the campground. High-brightness reflectors on the heel and toes enhance visibility and safety after dark.
The online raffle for the New Balance Niobium C_2 x Snow Peak will be live until Thursday 19th August 12:00BST.
