Spring is here and the New Balance 1500 has decided to test new waters with an exotic makeover as it joins the coveted “Animal Pack”.

The New Balance 1500, normally known as a lifestyle silhouette that features casual and lowkey color blockings has opted for a different path this Spring. While Animal Prints have been at the core of sneakerheads’ heart for quite some time, New Balance will join the fun next for an edition you will not want to miss.

This iteration arrives with a brown leather, mesh and suede upper that arrives with safari vibes throughout the toe, mudguard and heel. Animal Prints then prowl on the side paneling with cheetah and zebra print each making an appearance. Gold New Balance branding falls on the midfoot, tongue and midsole for a nice subtle touch while a white midsole and gum rubber outsole finish off the exotic new design.


A release date has not been discussed just yet but we expect to to see the New Balance 1500 “Animal Pack” to release very soon on NewBalance.com for $200. Check out detailed images below and stay tuned for more details.
