Here’s a quick maths lesson courtesy of New Balance: half 1500 plus half 1600 gives you 1550. Now that the boring stuff is out of the way, we can bask in the beauty of this perfectly balanced hybrid model. The smooth, perforated nubuck toe is hugged by tonal leather side panels with a little taste of mesh. A streamline Revlite sole is capped off with a gum outsole to fulfil your need for speed. The drop comes in three colourways – ‘Dark Navy’, ‘Graphite’ and ‘Slate Green’ – one for just about every mood.
The upcoming New Balance ML1550 will be available from select NB stockists on September 1.
