New Balance is joining the retro craze this year, as the brand has rolled out one of its first official reissues earlier this week. Originally released in 2006, the New Balance 1500 MADE in England in black and white is available once again.

The New Balance 1500 might be one of the brand’s most important sneakers. Designed by footwear legend Steven Smith in 1989, the 1500 is a slightly oversized distance running shoe, built to provide comfort and stability on long runs. Constructed from a mix of mesh and pigskin suede, the shoe’s level of comfort was so high that it quickly became a fan-favorite casual shoe as well, giving the 1500 the longevity to remain on retail shelves a full 31 years after it initially released. Now, New Balance is trying out something new with the 1500, reissuing a beloved colorway from the mid-2000s in one of the brand’s first official “Retro” releases. Now titled the “Bringback” color scheme, the black & white 1500 made in the brand’s Flimby, England factory landed on shelves overseas this week, giving us a chance to grab a classic colorway constructed in all of its original glory.


New Balance’s retro reissue of 2006’s 1500 MADE in black and white, now referred to as the “Bringback” look, released earlier this week, and is still readily available from Hanon in the United Kingdom. The classic neutral color scheme made in Flimby, England comes with an elevated price tag of approximately $240.
