In a recent post we showed you some plans New Balance has in store for the 577 model next year. It has now become evident that New Balance’s Japanese side is experimenting as well. The A03 from New Balance Japan strives to create a hybrid shoe/boot that protects your feet from trying weather. The two pairs of the New Balance Japan A03 pictured here sport nylon uppers and suede toe areas, and both consists of fur lining to help keep your feet both warm and comfortable. One pair comes in a pink/black colorway, while the other in a tan/brown one. Because these come from the New Balance Japan line, your best bet at a shot at owning either/both of these is going to be an online retailer. What do you guys think of this innovative New Balance product?
