One of our most beloved New Balance silhouettes has gone and grown upc... well, that may be an exaggeration, but the 1500 did just get a lot taller. Dubbed the 1500 Mid, New Balance has taken the humble runner and elevated its stature with a higher collar design. Come to think about it, this might actually be the first time ever that we have seen the 1500 rise above the ankle, and it looks pretty clean. Set in a monotoned palette of grey on grey, it's a suitable NB way to start off a new line too. If you like what you see, Hanon has them available right now. Stay tuned, we're extremely curious to see what else NB has installed for this newbie.
