New Balance Celebrates 35 Years of the 1500 Series

The endless trail of desirable footwear coming from New Balance is showing no sign of letting up any time soon.

Even their more heritage-inspired shoes feel more relevant than ever, which is why this release of the 1500 Series 35th Anniversary Made in the UK Edition floats our boat. 

First introduced way back in 1989 at the height of the running boom the 1500 originally took its name from its price point. 35 years later, in April 2024, the brand returns to celebrate a legacy of elevated craftsmanship and precision design, with the limited edition 1500 Series Made in the UK.

Inspired by the brand’s rich heritage and precision engineering, this special edition pays tribute to New Balance’s enduring commitment to excellence. This Anniversary Edition marks the first of a series of new 1500 colourways due to release over the coming months.

The anniversary edition showcases luxurious grey nubuck paired with tonal mesh and synthetic details. The innersole and box sleeve artwork feature a heritage 1500 series style graphic, alongside a commemorative typographic mark reading ’35 Years of Excellence’. Today, each pair of Made in the UK sneakers is created by dedicated artisans from NB’s manufacturing hub, in the town of Flimby, in the northern region of Cumbria.
