New Balance has unveiled its next-generation 442 leather boot, in a glorious limited-edition gilded design.
Crafted for players that pursue quality and excellence, the 442 v2 is the brand’s most timeless boot to date, introduced in a stunning gold shade with black accents for a flawless finish. Featuring traditional construction and luxury leather materials for a premium feel, the new 442 provides unparalleled comfort and definitive lock-in.
Given their impressive history of improvement with each new boot silo, I totally expect these will provide dramatically upgraded performance. Combining a glorious gold, cross stitched leather upper with a modern soleplate is always a winner and a great way to start. This is the type of release that comes in at a mid-tier price point but is intended to compete with upper level silos like the Nike Tiempo and Adidas Copas. In other words, they offer a viable alternative for players on a budget that want next level comfort and old school performance. Definitely a boot worth checking out!
