Japanese sneakerheads had a soft spot for New Balance, long before the rest of the world noticed its understated charms. New Balance has developed countless collaboration with Japanese brands in the past, and here is a look at the latest Japan Exclusive Model of the famed 1500. To be clear, this is not a collaboration with United Arrows, but an exclusive version sold only at United Arrows and Beauty & Youth stores in Japan. At first glance, these runners look similar to general release models, yet the different highlight tones and material selection on the upper offers a unique appearance. If you are overseas, jump onto their online shop to pre-order a pair.
