How to Score a Pair of Action Bronson x New Balance 1906R Sneakers

Last week, Action Bronson released the latest sneaker in an ongoing collaboration with New Balance, and as you probably guessed, it sold out immediately. However, there’s light at the end of the tunnel because you can still get your hands on a pair – if you’re willing to throw down some cash.

The rapper and chef’s latest collaboration with New Balance introduces the 1906R sneaker in a new “Rosewater” colorway. The blend of pink and purple hues with an orange midsole makes for an eye-catching and highly coveted shoe.

All that buzz meant the shoe sold out quickly, frustrating some would-be buyers. You can still get your hands on a pair of those New Balance kicks if you’re willing to shell out some serious dollars. Sneaker reseller sites like StockX and GOAT have a few pairs available from $500 and up.

If you don’t want to break into your cash reserves for the “Rosewater,” you’re in luck. More Action Bronson x New Balance sneaker collabs are coming later this year. The next release, the New Balance 1906R “Medusa Azul,” is rumored to drop at the end of June, with the Scorpius version dropping soon after.

If you’re looking for extended widths or sizing in this special collection, don’t hold your breath. According to New Balance, the sneaker is only available up to size 13. For those unfamiliar with the shoe, the New Balance 1906R is a running shoe designed with cushioning and compression to keep you comfortable and supported. That said, this is a lifestyle shoe and probably not the type big guys would want to wear when going for a run.
