Model: X-Racer Utility
Key Features: The atmos x Staple x New Balance X-Racer Utility features ripstop textile with gradation print on the upper, fur material on the tongue, and crow and pigeon embroidery on the left and right heel guard.
Release Date: November 24
Editor’s Notes: After recently linking with adidas, atmos is pivoting to a new collaboration with New Balance. Alongside Jeff Staple and Staple Design, the retailer has reimagined the X-Racer Utility, which was previously taken on by Bodega.
The atmos x Staple x New Balance X-Racer Utility is inspired by two birds in the crow and the pigeon, the first a reference to the crow in Tokyo and the latter a nod to the pigeon of New York, which is also an iconic Staple insignia. This theme is translated onto the sneaker via embroidery on the left and right heel guard.
The X-Racer Utility is a silhouette designed with all terrain support in mind, while simultaneously being more than stylish enough for city wear. Here, the sneaker is joined by a range of co-branded apparel, which is made up of a short-sleeve and long-sleeve T-shirts as well as hoodies.
The atmos x Staple x New Balance X-Racer Utility will be available through an online raffle beginning November 24, following the release of the apparel collection on November 21.
