IN FOCUS : New Balance Week 5 Deliveries

Another week into 2019 and another NB shaped delivery arrives at our door. This week sees New Balance launch the M1530 & the M997HGB. Both hybrid models that use stone-cold classic styles as a starting point.

First up is the fetching M1530. The vibrant mustard yellow suede is the first thing that catches the eye, it’s a rich & luxe application, the sort of cut we’ve all come to expect from those Flimby artisans. The suede’s countered by some tonal performance mesh that’s got the warmer climes in mind ensuring these 1530’s are breathable & lightweight. With the bonus of keeping that renowned shape razor sharp. Contrast is applied via dark chocolate brown nubuck accents with the subtlest of Dark red pops on the midsection, heel and outsole. Perhaps the most noticeable switch up on the 1530 is the REVLITE sole unit ‘stepping in’ to take on the traditional ENCAP unit’s heavy lifting gig. Fear not though as it’s no bad thing, New Balance’s REVLITE tech is supremely comfortable and is a more than worthy substitute, ask anyone that picked up last year’s MSX90’s. Tying things together (literally) are a set of flat white laces that match the comfortable lining and midsole colour that serve to really set the shoe off a treat!

Following up on the quintessential grey version of the M997HGC, New Balance continue their celebration of all things 997 and release this latest take that also borrows classic New Balance hues. We’ll spare you all the jargon about ‘Motion Control Devices’ & ‘ENCAP Reveal’ this time around and get straight to the facts we all need to know. The updates to the sole are indeed the business! Comfort, shock absorption and lightness all in offered in abundance. The material make up is a mirror of the previous version so we can expect neoprene, suede, mesh and super soft textured felt all presented in that signature navy shade with pops of dark grey.
