The 420 REVlite Slip-On model by New Balance offers perfect comfort at a minimal weight. The shoe features a slip-on construction but displays an elastic lace closure system at the front. At the heel is a pull tab for an easy on and off access.
The soft fabric upper is balanced by the leather overlay that provides the shoe all the sidewall support it needs. A mesh lining on the collar and tongue provides it with all the ventilation it needs.
The New Balance 420 REVlite Slip-On has a fun and sporty look that would look good when paired with jeans. Shorts and denim skirts can also be matched with this stylish shoe.
Clean lines and a slim silhouette with a modern aesthetic make this shoe a head-turner. The New Balance 420 REVlite Slip-On features the REVlite midsole technology which gives shoes durability and responsiveness at a 30% lighter weight than other foams.
New Balance is an American company built in 1906. It is one of the few American footwear manufacturers still producing Made in the U.S.A. shoes. Its 420 REVlite Slip-On is based on the silhouette of the original 420, which was released in the 80s.
The 420 was designed as a training shoe and was built to protect runners by dispersing shock through its three-layer sole. It had a lightweight construction and was made of nylon and suede. It was also hailed by Runner’s World as 1982’s ‘Best Running Shoe.’
The 420 REVlite Slip-On is an updated look of the old version with its breathable mesh construction, slip-on design, and heel tab for easy on and off.
- Some colorways of the New Balance REVlite Slip-On feature a metallic heel and N logo detail.
- Depending on the shoe color, the model might have a synthetic and leather upper or one made of synthetic and sweatshirt fabrics.
