Casablanca Officially Announces New Balance XC-72 Collaboration

In April 2020, Casablanca helped launch one of New Balance‘s most successful new silhouettes. Ahead of its Fall/Winter collection’s release, the Charaf Tajer-found and led label has committed itself to doing the same with the sports car-inspired New Balance XC-72.

Originally teased back in late January, the upcoming sneaker design (by Charlotte Lee) keeps a shape generally reminiscent of the New Balance 327, but infuses sportier elements via the sole unit. Premium perforated leather and high-quality pig suede still take over much of the upper, but ridge-laden support structures around the heel and much more angular midsoles make up the model’s bottom-half. Furthermore, a previously-seen pair revealed an aggressive outsole arrangement, which brings differently-shaped tread to both lateral and medial sides of the forefoot. The inaugural style’s yellow and red colorway differs from the green and orange color combination that’s become synonymous with the French-Morracan brand, but it delivers an equal statement.

No release date has been confirmed by Tajer or company, but that’s anticipated to change soon. In the meantime, enjoy the brand’s official advert here below.
