Sticking to a minimal design similar to the previous ones launched by the duo, the new XC-72 colorways bring a neutral and earthy palette to the popular unisex silhouette. Like its predecessors, the upper of the sneakers are outfitted with hairy suede, nubuck, and smooth leather in tonal makeup, complete with New Balance’s distinctive traction outsoles and oversized “N” logo.
Priced at ¥19,800 (approx. $144 USD), the new AURALEE x New Balance XC-72 colorways are due to launch on December 9 and will be available exclusively in Japan via AURALEE, New Balance, as well as select distributors.
