AURALEE and New Balance are back at it, this time with a new shoe called the “WRPD Runner.” First seen at Paris Fashion Week in June 2023, this shoe is all about mixing the latest tech with a style that lasts.

The WRPD Runner is a shoe that challenges the conventions of the traditional New Balance lifestyle silhouette with a design that distorts and warps the familiar. The shoe stands at the intersection of lifestyle and tech-utility, crafted with nontraditional lines that are both sculpted and exaggerated, culminating in a modern aesthetic that resonates with the pulse of urban life.

AURALEE has given the WRPD Runner a makeover with new materials and colors. The upper part of the shoe uses high-quality nubuck, suede, and mesh, sticking to a sleek, single-color look that AURALEE is known for. This simplicity really shows off the shoe’s design. Underneath, the shoe packs New Balance’s FuelCell tech in the midsole, offering a modern twist to the old-school waxed outsole. It’s a cool blend of new tech and retro style. Even the box the WRPD Runner comes in is special, marking the partnership between AURALEE and New Balance.
