New Balance’s Tokyo Design Studio launches the RC_2 this weekend
New Balance’s Tokyo Design Studio has been churning out awesome products since October of last year with the RC_1. While that piqued interest from NB and sneaker fans alike, TDS’ 997 Sport last month hooked people in. The TDS 997 Sport is a modern take on the 997, made with premium materials and an ultra-luxe execution.
This weekend, the Studio launches the RC_2, a shoe that features GORE-TEX uppers, Encap Reveal cushioning and a ripple rubber outsole. One distinct design detail on the RC_2 is the translucent material used on the upper, which exposes the over-branded GORE-TEXT lining. While the shoe may look very technical, there are nubuck overlays to keep the shoe close to New Balance’s DNA.
The New Balance TDS RC_2 will be available exclusively at Commonwealth starting this Saturday, March 23 with the shoe retailing for Php 10,995. Three colorways will be available as seen below.
