New Balance looks to kick things off strong in the new year with a lifestyle look that is certain to to be a smash hit. They’ve stripped down the New Balance 1600 and made it into a spectacular shoe with high quality materials.

The New Balance ML2016 was culled in the brand’s Tokyo design studio and it’s stark minimalist feel and focuses on form over function. The upper consists of a nubuck, which culminates in an ankle dressed in various types of tumbled leather and suede atop a creamy white midsole and a gum outsole.

The look comes in three colorways including black, brown and grey with a subtly branded New Balance logo appearing as perforations on the mid panel.

If you’re looking to start off the New Year fresh then you’re in luck as the New Balance ML2016 is set to drop at the top of the year on Jan. 1, 2016 for $180.
