The New Balance 1600 has released in colorways inspired by vintage pinball machines, urban exploration, lumberjacks, and more all within the past year. The eclectic in-house creations were meant to captivate a new audience more focused on unique color choices than the history of the shoe, but the classic running model will always be a part of NB’s release slate given its patented Abzorb cushioning system that’s been relevant since 1994. The latest release skips out on any of the fancy color inspirations for simplicity, as a high contrast black and white upper sees both suede and leather create a premium finish. Grey nubuck on the heel and tongue add a luxurious effect while just the right amount of red lends a helping hand. Available today from select spots like Wish ATL for $140.
