Resurgence of the Vintage: size? Exclusive New Balance 1906R Revives Classic Charm

The renowned sneaker retailer based in the UK, size?, is once again in the spotlight with their newest exclusive offering. This time, the retailer digs deep into the vaults of New Balance, bringing back the nostalgic 1906R model. The revival not only speaks volumes about the timeless running styles of the early 2000s but also subtly connects with the opulence of luxury timepieces.

New Balance 1906R

The latest collaboration comes not long after their successful ventures, including a remarkable interpretation of the 1906R and a spellbinding release of an exclusive Air Max 1. With a knack for striking color palettes and homage-paying designs, size? continues to capture the hearts of sneaker aficionados.

Dubbed as the "Diamond District Pack," the exclusive collection features two vibrant versions of the New Balance 1906R. Each variant is a spectacle of colors: one intertwines shades of green, brown, and tan, while its counterpart presents a grayscale theme highlighted with eye-catching reds and blues.

  • The green-themed sneaker boasts the dominant color across the toebox overlays, extending its charm through the suede underlays and mesh components on the tongue.
  • The grayscale iteration takes an unconventional approach with a unique "N" logo, presenting a color discord with blue on the lateral and red on the medial aspects.

Incorporating midsoles reminiscent of the 860v2 style, both pairs maintain a coherent aesthetic with matching rubber outsoles. Beyond the visual appeal, there’s a deeper narrative. The color choices are tributes to iconic wristwatches, with the green model giving nods to the revered OG Datejust Green Face and the grayscale leaning towards the aesthetics of the Pepsi GMT-Master.

Scheduled for a release on November 4, 2023, the Diamond District Pack is a size? exclusive.
