Good to know
Built as a low top, with an oxford-cut silhouette, the NB 1100 does not restrict ankle motion. It’s designed to let the wearer quickly adapt to spontaneous and sudden foot transitions. Furthermore, a lace-up closure, featuring leather laces, provides a custom fitting that suits the wearer’s preference.
Having a sophisticated, oxford styling and leather construction, the NB 1100 looks formal enough for dressy clothing, such as coats and slacks. But since it carries the running shoe DNA, it matches casual wear like jeans, khakis, and chinos, etc. These walking shoes are so versatile while being so subtle about it.
The NB 1100 comes in a refined series of collectible-worthy colorways, such as Black, Brown with Maroon, Navy with Blue, Grey with Blue. The full-grain leather version is available in Black with Grey and Dark Brown with Sand.
What makes the NB 1100 stand out is the way it seamlessly blends its highly sophisticated look (oxford-cut, leather-suede upper with classic stitching, leather laces) with the qualities of a sneaker (PU all-purpose cushion insoles, an EVA midsole, rubber outsole).
Famous for pouring huge amounts of money on research and innovation, New Balance proves that they're not missing out on style as well. With the release of the NB 1100, the good old Boston-based brand has taken a bolder step toward making dressier sneakers embedded with superb athletic performance.
- The rubber outsole delivers the kind of traction and stability a good running shoe would.
- New Balance branding is detail in the tongue, heel tab, sidewall, and insole.
