New Balance 690v1 | Charles Han

New Balance footwear designer, Charles Han released some more process photos on his Ig account, this time for the New Balance 690v1trail runner.

The aggressive, faceted sole unit looks great paired with a clean, almost entirely no-stitch upper (the zig-zag stitch at the heal and tongue being a nice little touch). I’m also always a sucker for a speckled sole unit.

From his highly styled, comic book strip-esque initial sketches, to his clean renderings and final product shots, we get a great glimpse into some of the thought process behind the design, below.
