Following Hypebeast’s sit-down with New Balance’s Senior EU Marketing Manager Joe Connolly in the brand’s notorious Flimby factory, New Balance is gearing up to introduce fresh additions to its locally-produced Made in U.K. line, which now sees a new monochrome take.

A diverse material range enhances the offering, which promotes black textured leather overlays that dominate the uppers. The previous makes its way through the mudguards, medials, and around the heel counters, the latter decorated with 1500 embroidery in a silver tone.

Tonal tweed adds a fuzzy finish to the toe boxes, while “Magnet Grey” leather trimmings settle on the collars and liners. Profile “N” logos receive a three-dimensional finish and a contrasting grey outline next to leather tongues that promote “MADE IN ENGLAND” branding. The design sits atop muted cream ENCAP sole unit and black rubber bottoms that boast further New Balance markings.

This new version of the New Balance 1500 Made in U.K. is set to hit shelves via New Balance and select retailers on November 1 for $230 USD.

Elsewhere in footwear, the Why So Sad? x Nike SB Dunk Low receives and official release date.
