The New Balance 1500 isn’t a sneaker we see pop up too often in the customs category, but when it does it seems to consistently don some of the more creative re-workings we’ve seen in the DIY sneaker world. The pair pictured is that small-N silo re-imagined as the New Balance 1200 in an homage to the Technics SL-1200, that classic turntable that your DJ wannabe friend in high school was always bragging about spinning on. Here Revive Customs slaps the Technics logo on back, runs some dots along the mudguard to mimic the lateral view of that prized equipment, and even flips the 1500 embroidery around to make the transformation complete. Click through for a full look at the New Balance ‘1200’ and let us know what you think in the comments.
Update: As of now you can grab the New Balance ‘1200’ from revive_customs on eBay.
