Leather adds understated luxury to casual trainer

Leather brings an unexpected touch of rugged luxury to New Balance’s latest trainer, aptly named the Elevated Basics.

The tumbled brown leather of the mudguard, heel overlays, throat and tongue has a patina that gives the shoe an already-worn look (as does the stonewashed denim on the toebox and heel). Brown suede is also employed beneath the brand’s signature ‘N’.

“Taking traditional high-quality materials and combining them to create a luxurious-yet-practical lifestyle favorite,” wrote Hypebeast of the shoe, “this made-in-the-USA sneaker is all about attention to detail.” The shoe will be released on selected retail sites like 43einhalb.
