New Balance gives 1500 a Athletic Club-Inspired makeover
New Balance is working with Spanish team Athletic Club to redesign its 1500 model for a special-edition release that celebrates the relationship between the team and brand. New Balance has worked with a couple football clubs prior to this for the Celtic and Liverpool.
The sneaker comes in a dark green colorway, which is a nod to the Bilbao-based club’s 2019/20 away jersey and the clubs flag of the Basque region. Gold has been added to the toe box and the “N” branding, and red embroidery is found on the tongue and side for finishing touches.
Take a look at the Athletic Club x New Balance 1500 below, and watch for the drop at New Balance stores in Spain on September 20.
