New Balance’s 1500 is celebrating its thirty-fifth anniversary this year, and the Boston brand has new colorways from the Made in England series releasing regularly. This week, a new navy blue & grey edition emerged, coming soon.

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 by the legendary Steven Smith with input from MIT researchers for peak performance. This year, the model has turned thirty-five years old, and the Boston brand is churning out colorways from their Made in England line to celebrate. This week, we got an early look at a simple “Navy” pair, which features a blue mesh base layer paired with midnight navy pigskin suede for the outer layers. Leather accents come in a medium grey tone, using white and light grey to balance out the rest of the color palette.


New Balance’s next colorway of the ’35th Anniversary’ Made in UK 1500 has not been announced for release yet, but is expected to arrive very soon, in Summer 2024. Dressed in dark shades of navy blue with grey accents, pairs will likely be available from both NB and select retailers, with a price tag of $230.
