Following the return of New Balance’s interchangeable “N” logos on its 574S “Flight Path” pack, the brand is now unveiling two versions of the 1530 in a brand-new “Lava Pack.” The Made in U.K. sneakers, in a new “Lava” colorway, are crafted in red or gray suede along with the side panels and sport overlays of black mesh. A black rubber outsole, tongue and laces contrast with red highlights and tonal gray details.
New Balance has recently been reworking the 1530 silhouette, dropping a “Scarlet Stone” pack earlier this month as well as a “Soft Haze” version inspired by the mist of early morning fog. Unlike the previous releases, the “Lava Pack” offers darker tones, referencing volcanic rock and lava, in two versions that complement each other. As part of the Made in U.K. line, each sneaker is hand-crafted at a factory in Flimby, Cumbria, UK, with the goal of producing high-quality footwear.
The “Lava Pack” will be available soon for €170 (approx. $190 USD) on 43einhalb’s website.
