New Balance brings us a new release to add to their “Elite Editions” collection the 1500 Elites were exactly what NB’s Elite collection needed. The 1500 silhouette is one of New Balance’s premier models and when they made an Elite using them it was a big deal. The color looks similar to the NB 999 elites perfect summer time sneaker. The 1500 elites feature a combination of suede mesh and a little leather giving them a real premium look. The grey suede works well with the accents of red in the laces and around the heel and the white lining,sole and trim around the branding really balance out the shoe well. Small layers of leather can be seen throughout the shoe and on the tongue the combination of textures on these is crazy. The New Balance1500 Elite should be at your local NB retailers if not it will get there soon. Keep it locked here at 8and9.com for more news on these and much more.
