The New Balance 9060 ‘Black Castlerock’ brings a stealthy, neutral palette to a contemporary lifestyle silhouette, one that merges design cues from the 99X series with the bold running-shoe aesthetic of the Y2K era. Complementary black and grey tones are executed on a layered upper built with breathable mesh and pigskin suede. Atop the tongue, a crimson NB 9060 badge takes inspiration from the original 991 lace jewel. The sneaker rides on a dual-density split midsole, featuring New Balance’s ABZORB and SBS cushioning.
The 9060 is a new expression of the refined style and innovation-led design that have made the 99X series home to some of the most iconic models in New Balance history. The 9060 reinterprets familiar elements sourced from classic 99X models with a warped sensibility inspired by the proudly futuristic, visible tech aesthetic of the y2k era. Sway bars, taken from the 990, are expanded and utilized throughout the entire upper for a sense of visible motion, while wavy lines and scaled up proportions on a sculpted pod midsole place an exaggerated emphasis on the familiar cushioning platforms of ABZORB, SBS and ENCAP.
