Keeping the archival reissue flame lit, New Balance kick off 2019 by heading back into their archives and pulling out a gem from over 12 years ago in the form of the Made in UK M1500TBT. Coming dressed in that unmistakable bronze leather upper combined with bronze mesh, topped with black panelling and finished with the classic ENCAP sole unit, these are guaranteed to be your first purchase of the year.

Don't let the gem of a shoe that is the M1500TBT distract you from the sleeping beauty that is the Made in UK New Balance M1500TGG. Mirroring the exact same material make-up as it's bronze counterpart, this pair comes in a green and grey base colourway with black hits, and is again finished with an ENCAP sole unit.

The ever present 991 makes an appearance here in a subtle two colour mix blending olive drab suede & ripstop punctuated with a bright safety orange accents for maximum effect.  A signature Blown ABZORB® sole unit runs beneath offering excellent midfoot cushioning and serving to complete this tieless style.

Much like the 991 this latest iteration of the M576 treads a similar path, opting for a tasteful and very wearable combination up top. That’s countered with just enough pop of colour to keep us hooked. A durable and seasonally appropriate pairing of pigskin suede and nylon ripstop ensure these M576 are equipped for the unpredictable climes that come with Spring. A C-CAP sole unit takes care of the hard work underfoot, guaranteeing both cushioning and support.

This drop also marks the return of the CT400 to the fold. A style plucked from the vast NB back catalogue, the CT400 is a heritage court style descended from the CT line. Which some of you may remember from when we teamed up with New balance and a few others back in 2014. The 400’s upper is pure vintage Tennis shoe, with a traditional material mix of old school performance mesh, countered with suede overlays and considered leather paneling providing. All providing that distinctly vintage aesthetic.  Down below this version of the CT400 comes equipped with a Vibram sole unit offering improved traction and durability. A plush Ortholite® molded insert sits above for added comfort.

The 997S premiered to the world in late 2018 with the help of an all-star line-up that saw long time New balance partners Kith step up and offer some suitably classic colourways to launch the updated silhouette in style. The 997S features an overhauled upper that manages to retain that core 997 dna that makes the style such a favourite and merge it with a contemporary footwear design philosophy. Boasting a neoprene sock like build and the all new ENCAP reveal sole unit. The 997S truly offers the best of both worlds.

Rounding off Drop 1 from the Boston heavyweights is clean, simple and very welcomed take on the 997. Opting to go for a simple yet defining black and white colour way the 997 as expected makes use of premium suede and a lightweight mesh, that delivers a sharp shape and the usual standards of quality. The ENCAP sole unit is offered as a base providing superior durability and support.
