New Balance Is Dropping Rainbow Running Shoes For Pride Month — Get a First Glimpse
June marks the start of Pride Month, and New Balance is starting the celebration early with the launch of its 2020 Pride Pack. The collection includes a pair of street-ready lifestyle sneakers in New Balance's 327 model, but runners get an extra treat: a rainbow-splashed version of the FuelCell Echo running shoes.
The women's version is striped with teal that makes the rainbow design on the sole really pop. The shiny metallic accent on the heel looks ready to catch the sunlight on your warm spring runs, while the laces are decorated with a rainbow flag and a heart. (The men's version is similar, but with dark blue piping instead of teal.) Best of all, the shoes don't sacrifice function for their bright look. Echos are designed for comfort and performance on treadmill or road, with a springy foam sole to get you flying on your next run.
So when can you get your hands on these? The Pride-themed FuelCell Echo shoes go on sale on May 22 for $110, and you can grab a pair on New Balance's website when they drop. We snagged some preview pictures to tide you over until then — keep reading to check out the rainbow-filled style.
