When it comes to New Balance silhouettes, many consider the New Balance 1500 the best of the best. Known for its sleek design and exceptional comfort, the New Balance 1500 is the epitome of the perfect New Balance sneaker. Although it made its debut way back in 1989, New Balance continues to find ways to reinvent the model to keep it looking and feeling fresh. Speaking of new colorways, one of their newest offerings has the New Balance 1500 dressed in a clean Navy and Grey offering.
The Made in England in-house release has the 1500 constructed using premium materials such as suede, leather and mesh materials. Also, when we say premium, we really do mean premium. When new Balance uses quality suede and leather, not only can you see it, but you can also feel it! Moving on, two shades of Blue take care of the majority of the shoe, while the Grey accents can be found on the collar, tongue, lining, sole unit, laces and the piping overlays.
Signature details include the double stacked “N” branding on the side panels, the embroidered NB branding on the heels and of course, the embroidered branding on the tongue that also includes the Made in England insignia. The tri-colored midsole comes equipped with ENCAP technology, which allows New Balance to encapsulate a specially formulated EVA wedge in a polyurethane shell. In other words, the sole offers you plush comfort AND stability, the best of both worlds. Got any Georgetown Hoyas fans out there? These have your name written all over it, right?
