New Balance Japan Enters the Lucky Dip 'Sample Lab' Collection
The other week we saw New Balance release the ‘Sample Lab’ collection of Made in England 1500s and 1530s, in celebration of the coveted runner’s 30th anniversary. The drawcard was that the buyer had no idea which colourway they would receive until the shoes were received. Now, Japan-based NB fans will also have a chance to try their luck with this collection.
Encompassing a number of colourful suede and mesh sneakers, we suspect many will be aiming to ‘win’ the 1500 rendered in the ‘Kakkerlak’ 577 from many years ago.
The release will be at New Balance Roppongi on July 20 – exactly 30 years to the day the 1500 released in 1989. Good luck!
