What is your opinion of the new 1906R shoe?

The 1906R is such an amazing looking shoe that stands out with its distinct looks and colours.Once I picked up the shoe and saw it on its side, I fell in love with it because the profile of the toe was reminiscent of my favorite model, the 990v5.The original 1906 Colorway exudes the feel of a classic performance running shoe.With the classic running trend becoming more popular, I think the 1906R is the perfect silhouette for consumers to style.

Please explain your creative vision, concept and styling for the 1906R photoshoot?

The original 1906 model was released in 2009 and I envisioned a concept of how things were at the time.The late 90s and early 2000s were a time when many people chased hopes for the future and yearned for the latest technology.It was an era of technological changes, associated with the physical condition of its surroundings, such as buildings, and the bricks and materials from which it was constructed.My concept for the past was a collage of buildings and surfaces from that era, which is also a tribute to the building blocks of the New Balance brand, which was established in the year 1906.For the future concept that has the gray shoe, I decided to remove all the extra elements to make the shoe itself the deciding factor and let it grow on the people.

How do you think the 1906R fits into the current fashion and style for today’s consumer?

In the era of liberation from business suits and leather shoes, a more modern and casual fashion style is spreading around the world.My feeling for the original 1906R color is that it can be coordinated through a more fashionable styling lens, whereas the gray 1906R can be casually combined in a more subtle way similar to sportswear style.In that sense, my thoughts are that the 1906R is a great shoe that fits any style.
