“Cybernetics Blue” evokes a sense of innovation as well as sterility as the light blue points to scientific pursuits, while New Balance’s trademark gray hue provides a touch of familiarity and warmth. The signature blue rests at the mesh base, while an interwoven array of overlays are enveloped in a dark concrete shade, contrasted by pale stone leather panels. Meanwhile, blue makes a second appearance, wrapping around the while, joining an off-white midsole and black rubber outsole.
