New Balance’s MADE series has been dropping low-key hits all year long, celebrating their most beloved and innovative shoes with premium colorways. This week’s release highlights the 1500, in shades of dark grey for Winter.

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 still be on retail shelves a full 31 years after it initially released. This week, the classic runner surfaced overseas in a new color scheme, decking out the 1500 in shades of grey and white. The look begins with a flat grey mesh base layer before several layers of dark grey pigskin suede are layered on top. Both lighter and darker shades of grey are mixed into the upper as mid layers, while white leather tongues and collars complete the look.


New Balance’s latest MADE in UK colorway of the classic 1500 runner has already released overseas in Japan from retailers like atmos, with wider global availability expected as the shoes continue to land at stores in the coming weeks. Priced at approximately $250, a standard for MADE pairs of the 1500, this “Deep Grey” color scheme will be available from New Balance and select retailers soon.
