At the very beginning of this week, New Balance revived the classic 650 runner, giving the chunky ’90s silhouette a clean white and navy makeover. Now, the Boston-bred brand is celebrating the 30th anniversary of the incredibly-popular New Balance 1500 sneaker by delivering a bold, attention-stealing rework of the shoe-style known as the New Balance M1500PRT.
A Made in England selection, the New Balance M1500PRT is a lively, colorful interpretation of the original New Balance 1500 silhouette and a standout part of the new “Sample Lab” pack. Notably, the sneaker’s build boasts a well-constructed blend of materials, with sturdy leather used for much of its upper and a strong, supportive rubber outsole; on the exterior, jagged and triangular prints mesh with black and white tones and small streaks of red, yellow and green pop out to separate many of the patterns.
You can take a look at the New Balance M1500PRT Made in England above, while the shoe itself is scheduled to see release on May 4. The New Balance M1500PRT will retail for around $201 USD, and 43einhalb is currently planning on selling the sneaker once it drops.
