Style: New Balance 1500 x Solebox
Company: New Balance / Solebox (collaboration)
Release Date: August 2009
New Balance and Berlin-based sneaker store Solebox have joined forces on a number of classic sneaker collaborations over the years including The Nazar / Evil Eye, Purple Devil and Toothpaste Pack.
The dynamic duo teamed up for one last collaboration on a pack of classic New Balance 1500 sneakers dubbed “The Finals”, featuring a sleek combination of Nubuck, leather and mesh materials. The release pays homage to the very first New Balance x Solebox collaboration – the NB 1500 GGB.
Two versions were created for this special release – an extremely limited Solebox exclusive red panel version (pictured) of only 350 pairs, as well as a green panel version, made available on a global level at a select list of top tier sneaker stores.
