The Rone brand was founded by Canadian skateboarder Tony Ferguson. He’s used his brand to bring a unique perspective on skate and street culture by celebrating its heritage through style and quality in its products. For his latest endeavor, Rone will be teaming up with New Balance to release a premium iteration of the New Balance Tiago Lemos 1010.
The New Balance Tiago Lemos 1010 is a ’90s-inspired model designed for pro skater Tiago Lemos.
“I’ve been wearing New Balance forever, and Tiago is one of my favorite skaters, so this project is very special to me. Tiago’s raw talent, power, and style is reminiscent of the ‘90s but with next-level pop,” Ferguson said. “You can tell that he’s inspired by, and is paying homage to, that era while also pushing skating forward. This collaboration feels like a perfect encapsulation of the past, present, and future.”
For this collaboration with Rone, the 90s-inspired model is given a White premium leather upper offset by the Grey “N” logos on the sides. Collab details include the Rone branding on the lateral side of the heel as well as on the lace dubraes. The Sail-colored sole is equipped with FuelCell cushioning that add comfort to the retro aesthetic of the sneaker.
Retailing for $180, the Rone x New Balance Tiago Lemos 1010 is set to release on April 27th at ronebrand.com and at select New Balance retailers and NewBalance.com on May 1st.
