The New Balance 1500 Made in U.K. Receives a Minimalistic Grey and Navy Makeover

For New Balance, high-caliber craftsmanship is constantly at the fore and thanks to its Flimby factory base, British artisans are allowed to set their touch on handcrafted models. The brand’s Made in U.K. line celebrates its 40th anniversary this year, and New Balance is commemorating the occasion with a slew of upcoming releases. From Dover Street Market’s take on the 991 to Paperboy Paris’ honorary line-up, the imprint now sets its sights on the 1500 silhouette. Acting as a tribute to the hands that graced them, the lifestyle model receives a premium makeover. Smooth grey leather uppers dominate the design, running across the mudguards, into the medials and down to the heel counters. A lighter tone decorates the ankles and tongues, mutually garnished with branded hits. The toe boxes see a dissimilar mesh construction, featuring navy leather trimmings below the laces that extend onto the medials. In addition, two-dimensional “N” insignias appears on the laterals, while the model number is embroidered on the heel counters as a touch of promotional flair. Finally, an aged ENCAP midsole adorned with further New Balance markings, and dual-colored rubber bottoms round out the design. This iteration of the New Balance 1500 Made in U.K. is set to drop via New Balance and select retailers on October 13 for £190 GBP (approximately $210 USD).
