New Balance Launches Its Newest In-Line Silhouette: WRPD Runner 

The WRPD Runner fuses lifestyle and performance, featuring FuelCell technology and futuristic design.

New Balance announces the release of its newest silhouette, the WRPD Runner, with the launch of the “Sea Salt” colorway, followed by additional colorways launching in fall winter.

The WRPD Runner pushes the boundaries of what a traditional New Balance lifestyle silhouette embodies, with an innovative design that distorts and warps the familiar. Where lifestyle meets tech-utility, the shoe is blended with nontraditional lines that are sculpted and exaggerated to give it a modern look and feel.

“The WRPD Runner is a new concept driven by the unique space where style and performance meet,” says Charlotte Lee, senior footwear designer at New Balance. “The upper has a refined focus on simplicity and quality whilst the sole is a warped expression of our pinnacle running technology, FuelCell. The fluid lines of the foam are blended with the abstract nature of futuristic design, evoking a strong sense of movement.”

New Balance WRPD Runner is pre-launching on August 16th, 2023 on NewBalance.com and HOLY CLUB.

Available at other New Balance stores on August 23rd, 2023.
