New Balance x Casablanca Reunite To Rework XC-72 Silhouette

Two colorways inspired by luxury sports cars.

New Balance and Casablanca are expanding their ongoing partnership with another sneaker drop. This time around, the duo has crafted two new colorways of the XC-72 silhouette.

The collaborative sneaker was first spotted in the fashion label’s Fall/Winter 2021 collection “Grand Prix” revealed earlier this year. Taking inspiration from luxury sports cars, the shoes are updated with accent hues of green and orange, and yellow and red throughout the upper. Each pair comes with a white perforated base, which is accompanied by colorful suede overlays. The tongue is branded with the two brands’ logos along with XC-72 branding on the footbed. Rounding out the design is the NB embroidery on the heel tab.

“From when we first started working on the collaboration, we dubbed it the ‘sports car for your feet’ as it evokes that feeling of when you first saw a luxury car as a child, you knew it was a car… But it was different to any car you’d seen before, it’s a feeling, a sense of wonder, designed to perform, designed to be special,” Casablanca’s creative director Charaf Tajer and art director Steve Grimes share in a press release.

Take a detailed look at the kicks in the gallery above. The collaborative XC-72 will be available from August 27 at New Balance and Casablanca‘s web stores as well as global retailers like HBX for $150 USD.
