New Balance Offers-Up an Alternative to the Nike Air Monarch

New Balance introduces a shoe that rivals that of the Nike Air Monarch. Coming in two colorways, Beige/White and Grey/White, the New Balance WX608 RW1 takes on a mid-top silhouette, and features uppers made from panels of leather and synthetic materials.

Both colorways take on a rather understated look, with neutral tones and simple branding. As this is intended as a walking shoe, the WX608 RW1 enlists a rather large, yet lightweight, injection-molded EVA midsole that is matched with New Balance's ABZORB heel cushioning. The only pop of bright color comes in the form of a white-threaded heel loop in bright red.

Those interested can find both colorways of the New Balance WX608 RW1 over at Allike where they retail for €95 EUR (approximately $110 USD).
