The Randomevent x New Balance 9060 “The Sweetness of Kin” sneakers mark the togetherness of Chinese brand Randomevent and the iconic American sports company New Balance.
Randomevent has been popular for its unconventional approach to streetwear. This time it brings a fresh perspective to the classic New Balance silhouette. The collaboration, titled “The Sweetness of Kin,” follows the dessert-inspired theme set in addition to the 1906R model.
This latest addition of the 9060, designed by Randomevent’s founder, Younker Hong, continues to present the distinctive aesthetic of the brand.
The Randomevent x New Balance 9060 “The Sweetness of Kin” sneakers boast a black mesh base, providing a sleek backdrop for intricate details. Suede overlays add texture and depth to the design. The side “N” logos are highlighted with a touch of blue, offering a pop of color against the darker tones.
In addition, the shoes feature a dark cream ABZORB and SBS cushioned midsole, which not only adds to the visual appeal with a splash of chocolate brown around the heel but also ensures comfort and support. The metallic silver overlays on the toe box and a clear CR device on the heel improve the aesthetic of the sneakers, and thus, they turn out to be a great choice for those who love to experiment with fashion and sneaker enthusiasts.
The ABZORB and SBS cushioning in the midsole provide a soft, comfortable bed for the feet, ensuring that style does not compromise comfort. This technology makes the sneakers suitable for extended wear, whether for casual outings or more active pursuits.

- Tongue logo inspired by the original 991 brings old-school vibes.
- Lace jewel adds a unique look and a personalized fit.
- Translucent CR device at the heel increases visibility in low-light settings.
