In 1989, New Balance introduced basketball competition shoes PRIDE 650 (high-cut),
PRIDE 645 (mid-cut), and PRIDE 550 (low-cut), characterized by their shock absorption
and cushioning. Of these, the 650 has been reissued and updated to the JUNYA
WATANABE MAN version.
Consistently expressed using various parts and materials in black, the JUNYA
WATANABE MAN FW23 collection matches the footwear, which is crafted like a
patchwork using various different black materials.
The refined, classic high-cut basketball shoe is available in two colors.

other in black × white, finished in a combination of suede/embossed leather/synthetic
