Beams Revive New Balance’s Archive COMP800. Sneakers
Back from the dead.
Originally released in 1996 as a long-distance running shoe, the “COMP800.” has been brought back to life by iconic Japanese label Beams. Now under the moniker of the “RC205,” the sneaker has been updated with mesh detailing on the upper and “205” branding on the tongue and heel. Alongside these aesthetic renovations, the black, white and grey sneaker benefits from New Balance’s ABZORB cushioning technology in the midsole. Available to shop from September 19 on BEAMS’ website, see the sneaker below.
