The New Balance 1500 you see above is actually a colorway that released close to 10 years ago. If you missed out back in ’06, NB is giving you a second chance. Rocking the team colors of the New York Knicks, let’s take a closer look at the shoe.
The made in the UK sneaker comes dressed in an upper constructed out of leather, suede and open-hole mesh. Most of the leather comes in Orange, while the Blue takes care of the suede hits. Two shades of Blue are found on the laces and lining, while the off-White Encap midsole adds some contrast to the upper. Already available internationally, it’s only a matter of time before these drop stateside.
Big fan of the model. I don’t own any shoes in this color scheme, but after seeing it in this 1500 I would not be opposed to it. Great work once again!
