Capturing the essence of the avian, the Grey Gull swoops in with a colourway that pays homage to the sea birds that are synonymous with coastal Britain. Emulating the gull’s light plumage, blue-grey leather is punctuated with smooth grey and black suede overlays to deliver a textured take on an athletic look.
Underfoot, the 878 features a pop of orange, yellow and red to the rubber outsole, offering an eye-catching interpretation of the seagull’s distinctive and colourful beak. Kitted out with New Balance’s signature Abzorb cushioning technology for exceptional support, the Grey Gull’s foundation will have you feeling like you’re soaring through the sky.
