After recently showcasing its Hybrid Trail Runners, New Balance is back with its latest pair of Made in UK 1530, inspired by the mist of early morning fog. Each piece from the Made in UK line is meticulously hand-crafted at a factory in Flimby, Cumbria, UK, devoting time and attention in order to produce high-quality footwear.
Dubbed “Soft Haze,” the sneaker boasts a mix of premium textiles like delicate pigskin nubuck and mesh rendered in muted earth tones and bright color accents. Velvety black suede uppers grace the tongue, heel and eyelet panels, complemented by light pink laces and underlays near the collar. Grey mesh fabric covers the toe box as well as sections along the sidewalls that wrap around the embroidered “N” logo. Offsetting the black and pink color scheme, a dark olive panel runs from the sides to the front toe, while the essential REVlite midsole finishes off the shoe.
The New Balance Made in UK 1530 “Soft Haze” is currently available at newbalance.com for $219 USD.
