How cool is this collab between Japanese outdoor lifestyle brand and NB’s Tokyo Design Studio? I particularly liked the1990s Calvin Klein vibes that they’ve applied to the moody monochrome film that accompanies the capsule collection that represents the two company’s core competencies. Snow Peak’s meticulous design being anchored by the highest standards of extreme environmental performance whilst Tokyo Design Studio’s purpose of creating high-minded design rooted in functionality, quality is cultivated through via New Balance’s 112-year heritage.
Product-wise the Snow Peak x New Balance R_C4 Mid Boot features a Cordura ripstop upper, GORE-TEX lining, Vibram outsole, midsole with ENCAP REVEAL technology, magnetic FIDLOCK buckle and is finished with a webbing N logo, reflective rope laces, a neoprene tongue and collar, and a co-branded insert and pull tab. The apparel capsule is constructed from Snow Peak’s iconic windproof, breathable, and water repellent cotton-nylon.
