This is the ‘Marathon Des Sables‘ x New Balance M1100. If you didn’t know, its a 6 day, 240km race across the Sahara Desert on foot. I don’t think the shoe itself was designed for the race itself. Its more like the colours and story of the design represents it. 

The Paris-Dakar race with cars and motorbikes is already grueling and sometimes deadly. I can’t imagine anyone being bothered to do a marathon though a desert. At least you’ll have cool shoes on.
