2019 has been major for New Balance and United Arrows' collaborative relationship as the two have joined forces for a trio of Ronnie Fieg-assisted nods to their iconic 997.5, as well as clean takes on the 997H and 990v5. Now Poggy and company are back with yet another exclusive NB design: a commemorative 30th anniversary edition of the 1500.
The under-the-radar drop takes its cues from the same playbook as the aforementioned 997H and 990v5 releases and puts a refined spin on the 30-year-old favourite. Here chocolatey brown suede is met with black leather and matching accents throughout while a slightly lighter shade of brown highlights the embroidered 'N' logos on the upper. Sets of both black and brown laces complete the elegant dress shoe-inspired package.
The celebratory release can still be found in select sizes via New Balance's Japanese web store.
