New Balance Tokyo Design Studio x Stone Island RC_ELITE V2

New Balance join forces with Stone Island as part of a continuation of a new long-term partnership that sees the reinterpretation of the innovative RC ELITE v2 racing shoe. The shoe’s highly breathable upper represents the combination of antithetical elements, between distinctive elements of the New Balance heritage aesthetic and cutting-edge materials and techniques, such as the mesh construction and application of the logo, which are both 3D. The midsole uses lightweight FuelCell technology and a full carbon fibre plate, offering the highest energy return with propulsive transition and 360-degree functionality, designed to allow for faster running. The 3D knit upper provides lightweight structure and features a thin, super breathable, race-ready vamp. The shoe is finished with strategic 3D printed medial and lateral branding with New Balance graphics on the right foot and the Stone Island Compass logo on the left foot, whilst New Balance’s highest rebound midsole compound combines with the full-length carbon fibre plate for maximised energy return.

The New Balance Tokyo Design Studio x Stone Island RC_ELITE V2 launches at HIP on 07/07/22 online via our draw.
