The New Balance XC-72 ‘Marblehead’ is the first colorway of the wild silhouette we’ve seen in a few months, casting the shoe in the brand’s fan-favorite tonal grey color scheme.

The New Balance XC-72 is one of the wildest new styles we’ve seen from the Boston brand in the past few years. While other recent new models like the 327 and 237 feel both tame and athletic in their design, the XC-72 is the alien spaceship equivalent. Sporting an aggressive stance and some interesting lines, the key feature of the new silhouette is the striking rubber outsole that wraps up and around the outer toe of each shoe. This week, the new silhouette emerged in a fresh ‘Marblehead’ colorway, slated to land on shelves in the next few days. This pair is tonal, like some of our favorite grey NB releases, beginning with a pale base layer before adding darker shades for the suede toe cap and New Balance ‘N’ logos.


New Balance’s latest colorway for the new XC-72 has been scheduled to release later this week, on May 21st, 2022. The tonal grey ‘Marblehead’ color scheme will be available from both New Balance and select retailers, with a price tag of $120. Check out the official images below for a better look, and stay tuned to JustFreshKicks for more New Balance release news.
