New Balance has been gaining momentum in the basketball world ever since they signed Kawhi Leonard in 2018, and now they’re taking it to the next level with the release of their first low-top sneaker, the Hesi Low. This new silhouette is a sleeker version of their popular Fresh Foam BB and TWO WXY V4 models, featuring a minimalist mesh upper with synthetic TPU overlays and a ribbed heel counter. To ensure optimal performance, the Hesi Low is equipped with the responsive FuelCell foam footbed from the TWO WXY and an ABZORB cushioning insert.
The Hesi Low is making its debut in two vibrant colorways that are sure to catch your attention. The first option, aptly named “Neo Flame,” boasts a dominant fiery red upper with pops of cobalt blue on the heel counter and tongue. Adding an extra touch of playfulness, the trim of the tongue, inner lining, lateral section of the tread, and the pale cream profile “N” logo all feature a bold “True Yellow” hue. Completing the look is a clean white midsole that elegantly transitions into a gradient of blue and red. And let’s not forget the customizability factor – the Hesi Low comes with color-matched velcro patches that can be attached to the tongue and mid-foot insignia.
If you prefer a more monochrome aesthetic, the second colorway has got you covered. The majority of the silhouette is dressed in bright white shades, while jet-black accents on the heel counter, inner lining, and midsole trim provide a striking contrast. The semi-translucent icy blue tread adds a cool touch to the design. In terms of branding, the tongue logo takes a unique approach, focusing on the tails of the NB logo, while the mid-foot insignia stretches to the quarter and midsole like the TWO WXY V4.
Excitingly enough, you won’t have to wait long to get your hands on these head-turning kicks. The New Balance Hesi Low is set to release on October 16th with a retail price of $110. In the meantime, feast your eyes on the official imagery of both colorways below. Don’t miss out on this opportunity to step up your sneaker game with New Balance’s latest basketball offering!
