SKU: M1906RGA Category: Tag:


New Balance, the Massachusetts-based sportswear label, has been making waves in the world of collaborations with the likes of iconic labels, designers and artists. A few of their most successful collaborations in the recent season has been with Aime Leon Dore -founded by Teddy Santis, Bodega snf Beams.

Shifting its focus towards the classic 1906 silhouette, the new iteration follows on from the duo’s initial partnership in 2022, which saw GANNI revive the 2002R with its subtle Scandi spirit.

The upper features a combination of breathable meshes and curvilinear synthetic overlays, outfitted in a striking, performance-inspired palette of bright yellow, black, and white. Co-branded details are led by a distinctive double pull tab at the heel, tongue label, sockliner and a ‘G’ emblazoned lace holder.

The look is finished off with the ABZORB SBS heel cushioning on midsoles and the N-ergy outsoles. Another branding hit is added with the initials of the label on lace-through panels.

What is New Balance 1906R?

The 2002 debuted in 2010 and was considered one of New Balance’s most luxurious running sneakers. It featured a full-length gel midsole tooling, and funnily enough, the New Balance 1906 did too! Why? That is because the 1906 was the original pair that influenced the 2002 model.

From heel to toe, the shape of the New Balance 1906 and its breathable mesh base continued over to the New Balance 2002.

With “R” added to its title to represent its modern-day appearance, there are a few modifications made. You’ll notice that New Balance 1906R now only has the ABZORB gel cushioning unit beneath the heel and not at full-length — just like the 2002R. The design is then complete with New Balance’s N-ergy and Stability Web technologies.

In fact, this midsole is taken from the New Balance 860V2, which entered the market the year after the 2002. Of course, expect the 1906R to come with the same lightweight experience and comfortable cushioning underfoot.

Are New Balance shoes high quality?

A top choice for fitness walkers, New Balance shoes are known for their plush comfort and quality construction. The brand also offers sneakers in a wide range of styles that provide extra support for different types of wearers, like those with flat feet or fallen arches.

Why is New Balance so comfortable?

Walking shoes should provide comfort and support while minimizing foot pain and issues like plantar fasciitis. New Balance’s walking shoes generally have thick, cushioned midsoles that absorb impact, as well as well-designed footbeds that provide arch support (although some of their models are more minimal).

  1. Shoes are cute and very comfortable. I wear the these for walking and jogging and they give me the support and confidence. I will definitely be buying more of these. I’d give more stars if I could.
