New Balance 1500 – Custom Re-Shaping

April 30th, 2013 by | 7 comments

new balance 1500 custom re shaping New Balance 1500   Custom Re Shaping

For whatever reason, the overall shapes of your favorite retro silhouettes often end up different from the OG releases. Recent New Balance 1500 issues have been a bit round in the toes for those that have followed the brand for a while, despite keeping things at home with the Flimby production. Anyways, if you’re not feeling that shape and you want something more in tune with the flat-footed look then check this quick re-shaping custom. All that it took was ripping open the toe box and doing a little bit of surgery and you’ve got a much more original looking New Balance 1500 silhouette. See the transformation below and let us know if you prefer the “after” to the “before” here.

United Arrows x New Balance 1500 – Release Reminder

April 26th, 2013 by | 1 comment

united arrows new balance 1500 release reminder United Arrows x New Balance 1500   Release Reminder

United Arrows has been incredibly busy in 2013 with the collaboration stuff. The latest one that’s set to release is this, a New Balance 1500 that gets washed over with a sandy beige look. The mesh treatments are super minimal on this one, as suede is made to dominate the upper. It’s worth noting that the pair is not of UK origin, so just in case you’re a Flimby purist then you’ve been warned. Get an extra angle on the United Arrows x New Balance 1500 after the jump and keep in mind that Premier is one of the select shops that will be stocking them this Saturday, April 11th.

United Arrows x New Balance 1500 – Release Info

The collab stuff from New Balance has been increasingly hard to get here in the US in 2013. First up it was the Fingercroxx pair, which only hit at a handful of retailers and in extremely limited quantities at that. And then it was the Sneaker Freaker banger, which didn’t even see North American shores. Next up it’s the United Arrows x New Balance 1500, a pair that will hopefully be a little more easily attainable than the previously mentioned pairs. Europe’s Titolo has theirs in hand now, with a release apparently coming soon. In addition to that you can expect select US shops to roll them out on April 28th. See the United Arrows x New Balance 1500 after the jump and tell us if you’re after a pair.

New Balance 1500 Elite Edition – Grey – Red

Another season means a second round of New Balance Elite Edition drops, as one model takes on the look from one of the others from spring.  The New Balance 1500 Elite was the one of the spring season group that’d featured the simplest colorways and contrast stitching, and here we see it redone in a blocking pattern more similar to the 999 Elites.  Red laces in a grey suede/mesh shoe is always a nice twist, and this pair’s strings work in conjunction with a matching heel, so take a closer look at how they’re laid out below, then grab yours at NB retailers like Oneness.

New Balance 1500 – Grey – White

Without a single release since the Elite Collection in early February, suede and mesh obsessives have been left without a fresh New Balance 1500 colorway for nearly two months.  Luckily, that dry spell comes to an end with this latest drop, a design we’d seen back in January that missed the projected February ship date.  This 1500GWS is the grey counterpoint to the tan TWS we’ve also yet to see, though this pair’s arrival suggests each of the unresolved New Bals promised at the start of the year should be on store shelves shortly.  Have a closer look at this pair that’s just a few degrees away from the grey OGs and grab yours today from SNS.

The iconic Staple Pigeon has indeed made its way on a pair of New Balances before when Jeff Staple paired with the brand to create a limited-edition run of the New Balance 575 “Pigeon” several years back and even the 577 more recently in 2012. Sneaker Customizer Zhijun Wang aka ZJDesign gave the New Balance Pigeon a bit of a revival with this amazing custom work, using the New Balance 1600 as the base and crafting an incredible heel-shroud shaped after a pigeon, with additional Staple Pigeon detailing on the tongue and the heel. ZJDesign calls this the first of an “Animal Pack” he’s working on, so we’re definitely excited to see what else he’s got in store! Check out the feature video and detailed gallery below and let us know what you think!

United Arrows x New Balance 1500 – April 2013

NONNATIVE is the Japanese fashion label most strongly connected to ‘wheat’/Timberland-ish New Balance collaborations.  They issued a ‘Coyote’ 1500 just after the turn of 2011, and now we see the same model take another crack at a golden brown suede build.  This long-awaited United Arrows x New Balance 1500 is a smoother suede than that nappy desert build, and adds to its smooth appeal by replacing the traditional suede areas with more suede (which isn’t perforated as in the case of most such replacements).  Matching socks extend the sandy tonality to the ankle, and you can see more images of this April 2013 release after the jump.  UA x NB collabs had traditionally been difficult to acquire in the US, but the recent Beauty & Youth 1700s suggest we could get a stock of these at top retailers across America, so stick with Sneaker News for updates.
