The New Balance 1600 has been known to utilize colorful and vibrant uppers in the past, but this time around it does the complete opposite as it comes in a tonal grey upper with only minimal hits of teal that attempts to offset the look of the upper. Let’s take a closer look at this version of the New Balance 1600.

The New Balance 1600 will come constructed in a tonal grey suede upper which is contrasted by the white found in the outline of the “N” branding and the off-white placed on the midsole. Attempting to lively up the look of the shoe are the teal hits found on he heel branding, tongue tag and top eyelets of the shoe. If you’re looking for a subtle option with just a bit of kick to it, you should definitely consider getting this pair of the New Balance 160.

Author’s Take

I can’t get down with this version of the 1600. It reminds me of what I used to “think” New Balance sneakers ¬†looked like when I was a kid. In other words, it’s much too dull and boring for my taste. For this to work, you’re going to have to change the base color or add a lot more hits of teal to balance out the look.
