Here is why the New Balance 610 is a gorpcore must-have

Gorpcore is back in, dear community! This is no secret to many. The term Gorpcore comes from 'Good Ol' Raisins and Peanuts' - a nod to mixing and matching different styles. The Gorpcore style therefore is all about functional items and outdoor gear used as a fashion statement. In 2024, this trend is back, maybe stronger than ever, with creative and casual outfits full of outdoor clothing, sneakers and accessories. Within this trend, the New Balance 610 model is hot again, too! - and here is why:

The New Balance 610 was originally introduced in 2012, but then disappeared from the radar. Over a decade later, in 2022, the model made a comeback. Combining old silhouettes from New Balance's archives with a modern twist, the silhouette is inspired by trail running shoes from the 2000s. Which makes this practical trainer a perfect fit for the Gorpcore trend.

Several colorways of the 610 have since been released, mainly in neutral tones. This makes the look easy to style with a lot of outfits.

As you can see below, the sneaker completes a classy outfit, but it can also be worn effortlessly under jeans.

What makes the 610 really special are its technical features. The upper comes in a combination of synthetic and mesh materials, this makes it a breathable and functional design.

The model also has a C-CAP midsole that, together with ABZORB cushioning and an N-Durance outsole, ensure ultimate comfort. This makes the New Balance 610 not only comfortable for everyday wear, but also ideal for outdoor adventures.
