After releasing the 878 “Grey Gull” collaboration late last year, END. and New Balance have reunited for a follow up release. This time working with the 1500 silhouette, the U.K.-based retailer has once again looked to the skies to deliver the “Grey Heron” sneaker.
Taking inspiration from the titular bird, the sneaker features a muted grey base with hits of orange, white and blue referencing the bird’s plumage, beak and crested head. This eye-catching colorway sits atop a construction of plush suede, nubuck and mesh, and is finished with a blue and orange underfoot. The heron theme continues onto the co-branded box, complete with a feather printed exterior.
Take an up-close look at the END. x New Balance 1500 “Grey Heron” in the gallery above. The collaboration is set to launch via the END. Launches site on August 22.
