Snowpeak is known for making high-end outdoor gear, while New Balance is one of the most legendary names in footwear. Put the two together, and you know you’ve got something special. And that’s precisely what we have in the Snow Peak x TOKYO DESIGN STUDIO New Balance Extreme Spec R_C4 Mid.
While the name is admittedly a mouthful, these boots bring clean design and loads of tech to the hiking boot space. Built to withstand the elements of the trail while still looking stylish in the city, the Extreme Spec R_4 boots combine a waterproof GORE-TEX lining with a CORDURA and premium leather upper. The Vibram outsole has been constructed for maximum grip, while the magnetic FIDLOCK buckle system offers both a secure fit and ease of use. Cushioning comes courtesy of a combination of two New Balance technologies in ENCAP Reveal and ABZORB for maximum shock absorption and support. Available in a stylish and sleek Triple Black colorway, the Snow Peak x TOKYO DESIGN STUDIO New Balance Extreme Spec R_C4 Mid will be available worldwide on Feb. 19 for around $362.
