One of the best things about living in Hong Kong is the close proximity of urban areas and nature – you could be conquering a challenging trail one moment, and in the next hour be dining at one of the hottest spots in the city. Perhaps this unique city layout is why urban outdoor style is so well received here. For the new season, American athletic brand New Balance has just launched its latest All Terrain collection, which includes a trail running shoe and a series of apparel that pairs style with functionality.
The Fresh Foam x Hierro v5 Gore-Tex is not your usual trail running shoe. With obsessive detailing and a more stylish and muted black tone, its mesh upper has water-proof Gore-Tex protection that helps repel debris. The Vibram MegaGrip outsole is one of the go-tos when it comes to all-terrain shoes, while the Fresh Foam midsole cushioning is engineered to deliver an ultra-soft, lightweight ride.
The latest All Terrain clothing pieces bring out a new rendition of the NB logo with totem-like graphics, with the patterned design adorning the jackets, T-shirts and sweaters in the new collection. The colourful anorak helps create a retro look, while the soft and practical fleece jackets are tailored into a draping shape that make them sharp enough for different occasions.
