For those who are still strangers to the New Balance brand, the 1500 is a great introduction to what they're all about. With their impeccable craftsmanship, New Balance take things seriously. These sneakers have been crafted in England, in the New Balance Flimby warehouse based in Cumbria. Each of these sneakers comes with premium quality suede upper overlays and synthetic mesh underlying panels. The branding is formed with an acute New Balance N embroidered into the sides of each sneaker and tongue. The final touch comes via ENCAP technology housed into the robust midsole of each pair.
