Los Angeles-based District Vision, known for its dedication to crafting “modern running tools for the mindful athlete” has an unwavering commitment to the running journey. It takes center stage in its second collaboration with New Balance – the striking New Balance x District Vision Trail Running Shoe.
This collaborative effort follows the theme set by their inaugural collaboration, the District Vision x New Balance FuelCell RC Elite v2, released in 2022. The latest offering is a maximalist trail runner, boasting an even more aggressive and covetable design. District Vision’s history of co-branded releases, such as the 2018 Salomon S-Lab Mountain Racer equipped with kevlar, has garnered a dedicated following, and this collaboration is poised to do the same.
Priced at $180, the District Vision x New Balance Trail Runner is available in two earthy colorways that pay homage to the natural elements of dirt and stone. The contrasting haptic print panels accentuate signature details like the “N” logo, toe tips, heel counters, and eyelets, infusing the shoe with a sense of rugged style.
Beneath the surface, the stacked Fresh Foam X dual-hardness midsole provides both a platform-like appearance and exceptional comfort, while the Vibram outsole, featuring Vibram Traction Lugs, ensures enhanced traction on any terrain. Unique District Vision touches, such as a metal District Vision eye-shaped eyelet, discreet text overlay at the heel, and an outdoor night scene graphic on the woven tongue tag, showcase the brand’s distinctive aesthetic.
In the world of running, the District Vision x New Balance Trail Running Shoe stands as a testament to the fusion of style and functionality, offering an enticing option for runners seeking both form and function in their athletic footwear.
