Japanese streetwear label nonnative bookended 2011 with a couple of tonal brown suede New Balance classic runners, the first of which was a ‘Coyote’ CM1500.  The golden nappiness on that pair may have been a bit over the top for some, so here’s another Japanese-born collabo that splits the difference between those wild animals and the time tested OG appearance.  The United Arrows x New Balance 1500 goes with the smooth, velvety suede NB loyalists have come to know and love, their sandy brown upper considerably softer than the aforementioned pair.  These are also more eye-catching than the ‘Coyote’ edition when you utilize the orange lace set, a bright accent that, similar to the recent Beauty & Youth CM1700, implies you could swap in a huge variety of different colors if so inclined.  Click through to see the ones with which they’ll be shipped late next month and stick with Sneaker News for updates.

Asian. Made. So. Bad. Hurts. Eyes. Please. Stop. having said that, even the Made in UK are slipping lately, quality wise. But the shape is better. Still not great like it used to be. IF ONLY THEY HAD MADE IN USA NB 1500's!

Yes, the shape is so lousy. That's the sign of poor quality. I wouldn't say the UK is slipping though, more like NBUSA is catching up ever so slowly.. C'mon, NBUSA, 1300's.... Make us Proud!

NB USA is not catching up ever so slowly, they've overtaken NB UK and streaked ahead. The latest 1500's I got (GBT's) are dead average in terms of quality. USA 1300's are now what UK 1500's used to be, aka the pinnacle of NB quality construction.

NBUK beats the US still in terms of fabrication. NBUSA sticks with the same leathers and such. I would like to see different fabrics like ripstop, canvas, etc... But I agree with the 1300's.. That shoe should be the staple of NBUSA.. It just looks right every time they do it!!
