Junya Watanabe Debuts the New Balance RC42


Junya Watanabe’s eponymous label just held its SS24 Paris Fashion Week show and used the opportunity to debut an upcoming collaboration with New Balance.

After helping introduce the RC30 last year, Junya Watanabe reunites with New Balance to bring another new silhouette to the market, the RC42. Like the RC30, the RC42 takes inspiration from the NB archive, influenced by the brand’s extensive catalog of vintage running designs. The result is a sleek lifestyle sneaker dressed in smooth leather with suede overlays, offered in Junya Watanabe’s minimalistic white and black colorways.

Fresh off the runway, you can grab a detailed look at the Junya Watanabe x New Balance RC42 below. Both colorways are slated to drop Spring 2024 at select retailers such as SSENSE and Dover Street Market. Stay tuned to Modern Notoriety for updates.
