“Blue Raspberry” has also been used for an even more limited-edition version of the KAWHI that will only drop exclusively at New Balance and Foot Locker’s family brands. The KAWHI features a complex mixed-material upper that’s dressed in all of the Jolly Ranchers colors, or more simply in the aforementioned “Blue Raspberry” hue, and features Jolly Ranchers’ classic characters and moniker on the shoe’s tongue. There is even a character on the collar with a speech bubble over it saying, “HAHAHA!” while looking very unimpressed.
New Balance and Jolly Rancher have taken a more subtle approach with the 327 in its “Blue Raspberry” and green colorway, and do the same for the predominantly white 480 — bar for also gracing its tongue with Jolly Ranchers’ gang. The slides are white, blue, and are finished with a strap covered in characters.
