The New Balance 850 is making a comeback. After reappearing at Aimé Leon Dore earlier this year for the first time since 1996, the 850 has been on every New Balance head’s mind every since.
The New Balance 850 isn’t just any other silhouette from the Boston brand’s archives. Originally released in 1996, the ML850 was New Balance’s first big leap into more modern product for a much younger audience. The key feature of the silhouette is the removal of the famous oversized “N” logo that covered every single New Balance shoe at the time. Instead, the brand opted for a much more subtle NB script on both the tongue and heel. Combined with the 850’s sleek and wavy overlays, this made for a much more eye-catching design than anything New Balance had been working on at the time. Now, after its initial release at ALD and a secondary drop at Bodega, it appears the ML850 is finally returning in greater numbers later this week.
