Over the past few years, New Balance’s 1700 silhouette has been somewhat neglected. However, following a signature grey glow-up earlier this year the Boston-based imprint has again returned to the ‘90s-inspired sneaker for another understated iteration.

Inspired by heritage designs, the Made in USA 1700 features an array of nubuck and mesh on the upper and a neat embroidered “N” logo, which sits atop an ABZORB midsole for cushioned shock absorption. Dressed in a “Grey/Blue” combination, each sneaker is rounded out with classic lace closure and an embroidered “1700” towards the rear.

New Balance’s Made in USA 1700 “Grey/Blue” is available to buy now from the brand’s online webstore, retailing at £220 (approximately $290 USD).

In other sneaker news, adidas Running has added the Takumi Sen 8 to its ADIZERO line-up.
