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.

New Balance 1600 “Pigeon” Customs by ZJDesign

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

March 18th, 2013 by | 1 comment

2405654B b 16 500 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.

New Balance 1500 Elite Edition

The New Balance 1500 silhouette is getting a little bit of a change up in 2013, as a subsection of the releases will be trotted out under the new ‘Elite Edition’ designation. So you won’t see the typical “Made in UK” branding across the collection, but what you will see is an upgrade in the various materials used. The result is a slightly sturdier version of the small-N sneaker that you know and love. Continue reading to check out the New Balance 1500 Elite Edition in its three debut colorways, and then purchase all of them in one fell swoop from the folks at New Balance.

25 best sneakers 1988 02 Complexs The 25 Best Sneakers From 1988

The quarter-century mark has been an well-emphasized milestone for pretty much anything that’s lasted that long. 2012 served as the perfect podium for several 1987 classics, and this year, we should expect more of the same – that is, in terms of Retro releases that originated in ’88. Complex took the time to count down their 25 faves from that heralded year, which include the Nike Air Revolution, the original Asics Gel Runner, the Nike Air Tech Challenge, the New Balance 1500, and of course, the Air Jordan III. Check out some the included shoes below and head to Complex for the entire bit.

New Balance 1500 “Elite Collection” – Green – Grey

January 11th, 2013 by | No comments

Sneaker News already showed you the four New Balance 1500s on tap for spring 2013, but it turns out that’s just over half of what’s releasing.  A reminder that the ‘Elite Collection’ trio we previewed in July quietly fell off the radar without a release update, this new makeup is a prelude of what to expect from the 999s and 1600s also featuring one-piece welded seams.  And if the 1600 stole a bit of the 1500′s thunder last year, there’s no bad blood between these two small-N Elites, as the 1500GG and its two upcoming packmates take on a primary color plus grey look much like last year’s 1600 stateside resurrection.  Stick with Sneaker News for info on all the rest and grab this pair from NB’s fellow New Englanders, Concepts.
