Using multiple tones of blue inspired by the sea,the “Chosen Few” is built with deep navy European suede with a high-quality European nubuck on the ankle collar. US Wolverine sueded pigskin as well heavily-brushed nylon also fortifies the construction for a truly sturdy model, with the moulded EVA insert with Hanon’s Bespoke logo providing the ultimate cosmetic appeal of the shoe. The Hanon x New Balance 1500 “Chosen Few” will be available on August 30th at 5PM in-store, with special-edition wooden shoeboxes going to the first 50 customers, and an online release will follow on Friday, August 31st. A closer look at all the impressive details are right ahead, so flip through the gallery and stay tuned for a release later this week.
