Editor’s Notes: For its third collaboration with New Balance's Tokyo Design Studio, Snow Peak has once again reimagined the Extreme Spec R_C4 Mid. This time around, the outdoor silhouette arrives in a stealthy "Triple Black" colorway, as the Japanese brand has updated the material construction from its first R_C4 Mid release in 2019. Premium cow leather is paired with CORDURA ripstop and a waterproof and breathable GORE-TEX membrane, while an ENCAP REVEAL midsole delivers improved cushioning.

The lightweight silhouette boasts a white suede outer shell concealing a lime mesh layer underneath. This in turn sits atop a speckled Free sole unit.
