Snow Peak And New Balance Tokyo Design Studio Prepare An All-Black R_C4
When New Balance‘s Tokyo Design Studio was still in its infancy, back in the Fall of 2019, Snow Peak released the collaborative R_C4. Overflowing with high-tech detail, the silhouette since went on to offer a number of low-top, inline colorways, with none ever bearing the same features as the Japanese label’s own. Now, we’re finally going to see a follow-up, after a three-way shoe, this colorway clad fully in black.
The pair is identical to its predecessor, in construction, upgraded with Vibram soles, magnetic Fidlock straps, GORE-TEX uppers, and the like. This is to keep in line with the brand’s “EXTREME CONCEPT,” which pushes functionality so as to withstand Noyama, the camp field, and even the city in all weather conditions. The triple black colorway makes its style near timeless. Along with the premium leather panels, the design is both stain-resistant and durable.
For a look at this new R_C4, see below. A release, as reported by Snow Peak JP is slated to arrive on February 19th at their retail locations. This means both their NY and Portland shops should be getting stocked.
