For as long as I can remember I have been a fan of New Balance; it was the sneaker of my childhood. As I grew up my love for sneakers grew, and my fondness for NB never died but the one model I found my self gravitating towards as I got older was the NB1500.

Originally intended for running the New Balance 1500 has been dubbed “the closest thing yet to the perfect running shoe.” It featured a design much narrower than previous models.


Today, the 1500 is a flagship sneaker for New Balance’s Flimby factory in Cumbria, but the athletic brand is still propelling the shoe forward with new, up-to-date re-designs including the “Deconstructed” pack with UK retailer size? And a line of “Re-Engineered” 1500s as well.

My love for the 1500 gets a new lease of life with every drop, especially the more considered limited releases like the London Cab, London Edition, Gentleman’s Pack and London Jewels to name a few. Not to mention awesome generals like Flamingo and Summer Pack.


I recently picked up the M1500JCO dusty pink colourway for this amazing summer season we are having and it’s little things like this that make me love New Balance even more. A brand that know real men want pink sneakers!

The New Balance 1500 rounds out any sneaker collection with enduring style and currently makes-up 70% of my own collection and in time I aim to make it 95%.
