Traverse The World In New Balance’s Technical SDL Outdoor Sandals

Jun 6, 2019

Category: Gear

Streetwear has carved its own niche into the world of style and fashion and has given rise to a new generation of footwear options in the process. While the sandals-of-old might seem outdated, drab, and a bit aloof, the conception of its “technical” counterpart has seen wild success — a market that fabled shoe manufacturer, New Balance, has decided to tap.

New Balance’s youthful take on the age-old icon, called the SDL330 and SDL900, are likely to turn a few heads this summer. Outfitted with a comfortable, cushioned, and durable REVLITE footbed and technical synthetic uppers, both variants seek to bend the rules when it comes to fashionable garb that can be utilized for everything from outdoor excursions to quick commutes. The 330, which boast a minimalistic clip system and obtuse exterior, join the SDL900 — a technical, all-encompassing design that features a high-performance BOA lacing system, heel strap, and artificial leather upper — on Coverchord’s retail website. The sad news? You’ll only be able to snag a pair if you live in one of Japan’s many prefectures.
