When the first New Balance M1500 sneakers were launched, it came with a whole lot of features that justified the very high price point. It just goes to show that New Balance was not willing to sacrifice on quality, even if it meant the end product will be at a premium price. And to this day, the M1500 series is a popular sneaker for runners and sneakerheads. For the next season, New Balance is going back to its roots and keeping a minimalist approach towards the whole sneaker. Both versions are made up of white, black and grey on the nubuck and mesh uppers with a hint of mint and lemon as highlights. Expect these classic sneakers to drop around February 2012 and for those who can not wait until then, end clothing is accepting pre-orders right now on their online store.
