New Balance launched the 1700 in 1999 and it's been loved by both serious athletes and sneaker heads. Though in the past New Balance focused predominantly on the athletic market, however their shift into the sneaker enthusiasts is a welcome change. The latest CM1700WA is a model that is designed with the aims of being on the feet of trend setters rather than runners setting world records. Uppers are made from premium nubuck in beige and it is complimented by off white shoe laces, midsoles and stitching. These will be dropping early July at select retailers and mita sneakers is taking pre-orders right now.
