Following the footwear debut between Stone Island and New Balance Tokyo Design Studio in October of last year, a second colorway of the collaborative RC Elite SI has now surfaced in blue and sandy beige tones. The RC Elite SI sneakers arrive in a distinct distressed design featuring choppy cutouts across breathable 3D knit uppers.
The upcoming pairs are said to be inspired by the classic New Balance 1300JP running shoes and feature a steel blue mesh base with grey suede overlays and eggshell white panels. Stylized New Balance motifs are partially exposed underneath the cutouts and the lateral "N" logos are partially split towards the bottom.
Additional details include contrast stitching details found on the heel section and "tokyo design studio" text printed on the tongue tabs. Rounding out the design are performance sole units featuring FuelCell technology and a carbon fiber plate for energy return and 360-degree functionality.
Take a first look at the upcoming Stone Island x New Balance RC Elite above and stay tuned for release details and pricing.
