Ready to bust up some trails? For their last collab of the year, New Balance is working with Los Angeles-based Undefeated to deck out the Trailbuster silhouette in two exclusive variations: The “Unbalanced” Collection features the Trailbuster in an original version (labelled TBTBUD) and in a re-engineered version (labelled TBTFUD).
Let’ start by looking at the New Balance Trailbuster TBTBUD x Undefeated “Unbalanced”: The OG version of the classic outdoor-ready silhouette stays true to the original while combining white suede and luxe black leather on the upper at a slightly higher price point than the TBTFUD.
With an updated construction and predominantly white colorway, the New Balance Trailbuster TBTFUD x Undefeated “Unbalanced” is the yin to the TBTBUD’s yang: The white upper is enhanced with seamless synthetic overlays and FANTOM FIT lettering near the toe. Both shoes feature reflective “N” logos, speckled midsoles, New Balance and Undefeated co-branding on the memory foam insoles as well as leopard-pattern spots along the heel tab.
The New Balance Trailbuster TBTFUD x Undefeated “Unbalanced” and New Balance Trailbuster TBTBUD x Undefeated “Unbalanced” are available as of today at finer sneaker stores worldwide. Hanon Shop in Scotland offers them for £109.00 (TBTFUD) and £119.00 (TBTBUD). All images via Hanon Shop.
