This is the MRL574 Revlite. I designed this to be lighter then the standard Revlite that was put out by the running team, but have it keep the look of the NB Classics styles. I chose an emboss on the Vamp, Tongue, and Collar with an emboss that gave off the feel that it was a rubber coated mesh. The upper was designed to take advantage of no-sew materials.
This was the 700 Concept, where I took the 501 upper, made it into a No-Sew design with mesh and a stitched on Suede Heel; with the addition of the Rev-Lite tooling I designed.
The 520 was a concept design to enter the Youth Sport Culture. I worked on this project with redesigning the 574 into a new design. I removed the standard saddle and replaced it with intersecting strips of leather to make a giant N. I then placed a smaller N on the quarter side, so when a person's pants covered the larger N, it could be seen that it was a New Balance design.
A rough concept of taking an older style, the ML650 and making it a slip on trail sneaker.
The 446 was my second attempt at an upper design. The Goal of the project was to make a more mainstream version of the 556. I used the same outsold and midsole, and designed an upper that could meet both synthetic and leather duty.
