This model showcases a neutral redesign, featuring a cream-white mesh base and a dark grey "N" logo. Hints of pink and purple embellish the synthetic overlays, resulting in a subtle iridescent effect over the underlays.

A striking arrangement of metallic silver adorns the toe cap, while the heel counter introduces a contrasting beige hue. The ABZORB midsole combines grey and sail white, highlighted by vibrant yellow tones on the ABZORB SBS pods at the heel.



1906R Moonrock

The New Balance 1906R "Moonrock" shines with vibrant metallic accents, adding a contemporary flair to this retro trainer that's been turning heads in recent years.

This rendition features a cream-white mesh upper accompanied by metallic teal synthetic overlays, while the Beige tones highlight the heel counter and "N" logo. New Balance branding graces the mesh tongue and sockliners.
