Previewed by the fashion label’s art director Steve Grimes ahead of its digital Fall/Winter 2021 “Grand Prix” show is the previously unseen XC-72. The lifestyle shoe, reportedly also designed by 327 visionary Charlotte Lee, wears the familiar orange and green scheme used on the first set of Casablanca x New Balance 327 styles, but is coupled with white leather and grey suede overlays. A large ‘N’ branding appears at the midfoot, while co-branding is applied to the tongue. Capping off the look is a white midsole and a green outsole.
As of now, release details on the Casablanca x New Balance XC-72 have yet to be announced, but keep it locked to Sole Collector for new developments as they become available.
UPDATE (08/10): Following a brief look at the Fall/Winter 2021 “Grand Prix” fashion show in January, Casablanca shares another teaser of its forthcoming New Balance XC-72 collab dressed in a new red and yellow colorway. According to the label, a global launch of the shoe is arriving soon but a specific date wasn’t revealed.
UPDATE (08/16): New Balance confirms that the two XC-72 styles will be released exclusively at Casablancaparis.com on Aug. 27 followed by a global launch on Aug. 28. Both pairs will retail for $150.
