Who’s a gamer out there? Even if you’re not, you’ve probably hit the pinball machine at least once in your lifetime, and that’s exactly what New Balance is paying tribute to this time around with the New Balance 1600 silhouette.

We’ve seen New Balance tackle this look before, showing off quite a few hues that you’d definitely see in an arcade game. But this time around they’re keeping it a but simpler to make sure the masses are willing to cop (since not everyone wants to rock the rainbow). The upper gets draped in a nice Grey suede base, while Black reinforces the laces, inner lining, outsole and heel. The rest is history, with Red and Blue highlighting the branding and bits throughout the upper and midsole. No word of a release date just yet, but stay tuned and we will keep you posted.

Author’s Take

I’m picking the pinball motif from years past over these.

This rendition is still solid. But I happen to like all the flashy and neon colors you’d see with an arcade game.
