New Balance x Sample Lab 1500 & 1530

Devised as part of the New Balance 1500‘s 30th Anniversary celebration, the footwear company has devised a very limited Sample Lab collection that encompasses a mere 24 pairs of shoes. Each Made in the UK model features a randomly-selected colorway, which is then packaged in an opaque plastic bag to hide the makeup, meaning that each customer will be in the dark about the shoe they’re receiving until they’ve paid for it. Each shoe is either a 1500 or new M1530; the latter is a new model that celebrates the anniversary with a subtly-elevated take on 1500, complete with new toe embroidery and a single-piece midsole.
