Balboa Park is the 1200-acre urban greenspace in the heart of San Diego, home to several museums, theatres, gardens and massive open spaces. Established in 1835, it is one of the oldest parks in the United States. Based on this urban park we introduce the Balboa runner, a sleek modern high-top. The full grain leather upper is finished with carnauba wax to give it sheen and durability. A stylish padded faux fur collar adds warmth for the colder climates. As with all PARC products the Balboa is handmade in Portugal with the finest European materials.
