Brand: New Balance
Colourway: Grey / Silver / White & Blue / Grey / Black
The 1500’s are just stunning if you ask me. The design of the shoe, the amount of different pieces that are slotted together, they work perfectly for me. New Balance has a long and proud history in the production of athletic equipment, and their adaptation of this experience and technology really shows in their latest releases. The ‘Encap’ midsole, the simple curved heel, and the mesh & suede/leather upper come together to creat a really lovely piece of aesthetic design, complimenting the highly engineered ‘mechanics’ of this shoe.
I’ve selected two colourways I really dig on the 1500. The subtle leather & textile grey & white example shown above, and the brighter blue, grey & black alternative shown below; both look immense.
New Balance are coming out with some really sweet shoes, my pride and joy being my blue pair of 574 classics. The 1500 is taking their retro roots, and putting a modern spin on them. Expect to pay anywhere from £80-120 for a new pair of these. It may seem a lot, but New Balance is renowned for its build quality, so they’d no doubt be rocking it for many years to come.
