When it comes to the New Balance 1400, “clean” and “crisp” are often words that come to mind. Whenever New Balance revives the 1994 runner, they tend to opt for no-frills color schemes that put its elegant design lines on full display. The 1400’s latest retro release does that in full: it’s an all-white colorway, made in the USA and constructed entirely of supple leather.

With a shoe that’s this minimal, there’s not a ton to report regarding colorblocking or material preferences. As mentioned above, it’s all white and all leather. Tonal branding appears on the quarter panels and heel, while the tongue adds the faintest touch of light gray into the mix on its tag, and heel clips offer a slight yellow tint to nod to the shoe’s original year of release. Down below, midsoles add one final dash of branding and combine ENCAP and C-Cap foam for a comfortable and supportive fit that also completes the look. In an interesting side note, the 1400 was originally supposed to release in the late ’80s as a follow-up to the 1300, but its then-revolutionary sole was difficult to mass produce, which delayed its inaugural release.

This crisp, made in the USA New Balance 1400 will release at Japanese retailers like atmos on June 12. Its MSRP is set at ¥ 37,400 JPY (approximately $341 USD), inclusive of tax.
