New Balance’s England factory has been churning out exciting releases this year, and this week is no different. Today, the brand launched the classic 1500 in a new grey color scheme, complete with eye-catching yellow accents.
The New Balance 1500 might be one of the brand’s most important sneakers. Designed by footwear design legend Steven Smith in 1989, the 1500 is a slightly oversized distance running shoe, the silhouette is built to provide comfort and stability on long runs. Constructed from a mix of New Balance’s favorite pigskin suede, tumbled leather, and mesh, all mounted on top of ENCAP cushioning midsole, the 1500 is built for wearing. The premium MADE in England iteration of the 1500 resurfaced in another new colorway this week, this time in yet another grey-based color scheme. The new pair begins with a pale grey perforated leather base layer for the toe box, before adding suede overlays along the mudguard, quarter panels, and heels in a medium grey tone. Golden yellow stands out along the toe box, while also appearing on the tongue and heel’s branding to complete the look.
