New Balance is without a doubt the sneaker brand that comes out with the most themed packs. I must admit though, sometimes I find it very difficult to find the theme/inspiration on the shoes. Take for example this New Balance 1500 Mid from the Avalance Pack. How exactly are these shoes themed or inspired from an Avalanche? While the theme may be in question, the fact that the shoes are waterproof is not.
The New Balance 1500 Mid was recently introduced last year as the mid-top version of the classic New Balance 1500. What differentiates this version from past 1500 Mids is the fact the upper which is constructed out of a premium suede and ripstop nylon, happens to have a water resistant coating to keep you nice and dry during the wet weather conditions. In addition to being waterproof, the shoes will also have reflective detailing to add to the aesthetics of the shoe. Coming in dark grey or black, you can buy these through on overseas retailer or wait until they drop stateside.
