– Urban Outfitters x New Balance 205
The New Balance 205 is named after the record time of Khalid Khannouchi at the Boston Marathon in 1999 of 2 hours and 5 minutes. The shoe features Abzorb cushioning in the heel, and an Acteva midsole. Acteva is said to be 12% lighter than a traditional EVA midsole. The 205 is an everyday runner.
New Balance partnered with Urban Outfitters to release two special summer flavored versions of the 205. One with a tropical floral print and the other sports multi-colored horizontal stripes.
