New Balance 1500 Made in UK 35th Anniversary

New Balance’s 1500 model turns thirty-five years old in 2024, and the Boston brand is celebrating the iconic runner with a special Made in UK edition, cast in their classic shades of grey.

The New Balance 1500 originally released in 1989, intended as a multi-sport shoe with a focus on basketball and tennis. The model also serves as a suitable distance running shoe, and was designed with input from MIT professors. Designed by Steven Smith, a legendary footwear designer responsible for a number of adidas Yeezy models, the shoe is getting special treatment for its big birthday. New Balance is set to release a “35th Anniversary” style from the Made in UK program, assembled in their England manufacturing facility. The look mixes white underlays with dark grey overlay panels, adding small hints of navy blue to the midsole and mesh panels for a special look.


New Balance’s upcoming “35th Anniversary” pair of the Made in UK 1500 has not been announced for release yet, but is expected to arrive very soon. Dressed in shades of grey with minimal navy blue accents, pairs will likely be available from both NB and select retailers, with a high price tag around $250.
