It seems the world can't get enough of the slide frenzy. From the likes of Salehe Bembury's avant-garde Pollex Slide to Kanye West's minimalistic Yeezy Slides, the slip-on storm has been stirring in the footwear universe. Now, joining the slide brigade with a summer-friendly twist is New Balance, flaunting their NB MRSHN Slide in a palette of eclectic hues.
In true New Balance fashion, they have leveraged their signature Fresh Foam cushioning system, a trusted companion of their basketball portfolio, to birth a new slide silhouette. Paving the way for a sublime underfoot experience, this slide proudly displays a terrain-like visual charm, an attribute celebrated across New Balance's past collaborations. A complex, porous detailing engulfs the one-piece forefoot and lateral sole unit, making for an exciting twist in slide aesthetics.
The MRSHN Slide celebrates diversity in its color offerings. It presents itself in a multi-colored neon medley of orange and blue, a fun nod to summer’s vibrancy. For those who appreciate a more understated approach, the slide is also available in classic black-and-white monochrome versions.
Daring to be different, the fourth colorway shakes things up with a stark contrast to its siblings. Veering away from the simplicity of the monochrome, it splashes a rainbow of volt green, blue, and red gradients on a canvas of cream.
New Balance's MRSHN slide was initially released through EU-based retailers in June, stirring up excitement among slide enthusiasts. A wider release through New Balance US is highly anticipated later this year, promising to bring this unique spin on slide footwear to more feet around the world. Retailing at $55 and offering unisex sizing, it's a slide worth the wait. So keep your eyes peeled and your feet ready for a slide experience like no other.
