When it comes to running shoes, New Balance is very self-aware, they understand their place in the market and know that they make sneakers for the active person. That doesn’t mean that they don’t have something for the subset of people who just wanna chill in their kicks–which is how the Athleisure Pack came about.
For the Athleisure Pack, New Balance has brought back the 878; which is a model that isn’t too often seen but in it’s absence is sorely missed. The colorway features a grey suede and mesh build with white leather accents and pops of brown suede on the tongue and branding. Hits of blue spice up the heel as well as a lone eyelet at the top of the lace plate while a deep gum outsole cements the purpose of the tan suede.
These New Balance 878’s are available now at select New Balance retailers including KITH who provided these swanky product shots of the model as well.
