New Balance Made in England 1500
Beige color covers most of this new version, with some grey layers appearing on the side panels and also on the toe box. Tonal lacing and textile lining are among the additional features.
The ‘N’ branding on the side and the ‘Made in England’ tagging on the tongue complete the look. The well-known ENCAP midsole features grey and light brown coloring that way contrasting with the whole white sole and off-white outsole.
One of the most interesting features of this latest iteration is, in fact, its shape. As often mentioned by some of the most dedicated fans of the brand, this particular shape is in fact quite respectful of the model’s original release form. Regarding shape, the New Balance 1500 Suede Beige is totally on point.
M1500: walking the future since 1989
The M1500 was first released back in 1989. At the time, the great innovation was, of course, the inclusion of the ENCAP midsole design. One of the shoes distinct features (and one that is way notable nowadays) was the smaller ‘N’ mark on the side.
By then, it was really a contrasting characteristic considering that most previous New Balance models all had a large ‘N’ as their main branding feature.
New Balance: quality since the beginning
New Balance history is the better proof of a brand that has managed to, somehow, validated their price point without half the hype (of other brands). Also worth the mention is the fact that they don’t have as half as much heat that most other labels have.
The history of New Balance, Inc. is one of business savvy and also, and most of all, dedication. In fact, the truth is that betting on your roots – and betting big – is not always a bad idea, it really is smart (most of the times).
The models in the New Balance catalog are really numerous, but there, however, some iconic releases and models that symbolize what the brand goes through in its history as well what we can expect in the future.
The history of New Balance and its timeline essentially breaks down into several attempts at modernization. Every endeavor from the brand is about doing something that becomes a standard-bearer.
Additionally, it is also worth remembering that New Balance is never afraid of making a sometimes troubled splash (the New Balance 574 S or some of their most recent hybrid models are better proof of that).
What do the numbers say?
Most of New Balance’s models include both numbers and letters, just like this brand new M1500 JTA. Well, in this particular case, the M implies that this is a Men’s model, while the 1500 reveals that this is (at least it used to be) a high-performance model for all athletes.
Let us not forget that in 1989 (when it was first released) the 1500 was (more than anything else) a runner.
An old school runner, or a permanent declaration of style, the New Balance M1500 JTA is available to buy now.
