It’s birthday season at New Balance! This year, the Boston brand celebrates the 30th anniversary of their storied 1500 silhouette. And as a special treat for fans, the New Balance 1500 Anniversary Pack includes both an homage to a classic 1500 as well as a new 1500 colorway.
First up, the 1500 uses a well-tried design that long-standing fans of the silhouette will love. A dark navy nubuck upper with hits of grey and a mesh toe box sits on a white ENCAP midsole. Stitched branding on the tongue, heel and sidewalls finalize the timeless appearance.
The 1530 is the latest member of the “Made in England” family, featuring the extraordinary quality known from NB’s Flimby factory. The RevLite sole unit is a novelty on the 1500, reducing the shoe’s weight by 30 % – and explaining the “1530” name. In terms of color though, the shoe stays true to its roots. Dressed in a light grey base tone, navy blue accents appear on the premium leather and mesh upper.
