New Balance links up with the Japanese retailer, Urban Research to work on a very special version of the New Balance 620. The collaboration is geared more toward a retro aesthetics and it manages to to do very well. Let’s take a closer look at this upcoming exclusive release.

Giving the shoe its retro feel, the 620 opts to come in the tech and construction of the original 620 that made its debut back in 1980. The shoe starts off with an all-Black upper made out of mesh, suede and leather. Breaking up the tonal look of the shoe is the White found on the midsole and the Gum rubber placed on the outsole. Tonal laces, dual branding on the insole and White branding on the tongue complete the look of the shoe. Said to be an Urban Research exclusive, the Urban Research x New Balance 620 will only be available in-store and online beginning July 9.

Author’s Take

Really like the classic and retro feel to the shoe. It won’t be the most comfortable shoe, but that’s not surprising considering it’s a shoe with outdated technology.
