New Balance U420

New Balance reintroduces their original running shoe, the 420, for 2011. It features premium materials and all the original detailing as it was brought to market in the 1970s almost forty years ago. The 420 speaks directly to New Balance’s running heritage.

Originally designed to protect the athlete, the 420 incorporates a three layer outsole and New Balance’s technologically superior patented Extended Saddle. Today, the U420 retains a classic silhouette while providing a low profile sneaker choice for both men and women alike.

The 420 is available now at Blends, in 6 colorways, retailing at a suggested price of $60. Visit www.newbalance.com/lifestyle to find retailers nationwide.
