#kixspotted World Balance Exoshell


World Balance Exoshell
This sneaker from World Balance just dropped yesterday and I think that this is one of those models that I would consider great because of its looks. They are calling this the World Balance Exoshell, inspired by kicks from the 90's which I think is one of the best eras in sneaker history. Those were the days where brands pushed the envelop in terms of tech and style. Nowadays, the trend in street fashion is pointing towards the 90's again so this is a good chance for you to get into the 90's kicks vibe like different upper materials and panelings in the upper.

The World Balance Exoshell features a combination of suede, leather, nylon, mesh and some holographic panels on the upper making it look sturdy and a bit bulky but still weighs reasonably okay. It's not a "built and feel like a tank" sneaker, but you still get that sturdy-looking shoe. As the name suggest, the Exoshell features a zipper enclosure and I think it looks good whether you rock them zipped or unzipped depending on your preference since the fit doesn't look sloppy even though it is unzipped. In fact, it gives off that laid back look just like how some sneakerheads rock their kicks unlaced or loosely laced. For the midsole, it features a Trampolite foam using the midsole tooling of their World Balance Paxton -- my go-to sneaker nowadays because the Trampolite foam used there is very soft and comfy which is perfect for everyday use. Inside, you can still find the Bounce Pad Insole System to provide additional step-in comfort. Underneath is a solid rubber outsole with some parts of the midsole exposed underneath allowing the Trampolite foam to expand giving you great comfort.

The World Balance Exoshell comes in mens and womens sizing and comes in different colorways retailing for Php 2,999 which you can get at World Balance Trinoma as well as other WB branches and online.
