Like the fastest cars in the world, the sneakers in our Elite Edition Racing Collection combine opulence with adrenaline. Luxurious leather and mesh make this 1600 a premium pick — but it’s the racing-inspired details that propel it to the front of the pack. Red and blue accents stand out on the otherwise neutral silhouette, bringing to mind the pace cars used in races. For high-performance cushioning, this men’s shoe also features an ABZORB® crash pad that absorbs shock lap after lap. A special insole with the collection’s name and an embroidered “Elite Edition” tongue further distinguish this premium sneaker.
The Racing 1600 is a New Balance Elite Edition Classic. The high-quality craftsmanship you find in every New Balance shoe is taken even further in our Elite Edition Classics. Highly collectible, and in limited supply, these shoes set the standard for street style.
