Offering versatility in styling through a simple aesthetic, the Pop Trading Company x New Balance M1500 Shoes update the classic ‘Made In England’ collection. The upper has been created in off-white tumbled nubuck for a premium yet subtle finish, matched through tonal stitching which connects the overlays for a deconstructed look. A reflective N logo decorates the lateral panels, sitting over a white backdrop which works in tandem with the contrast detailing of the 1500, Made In England and NB branding which features throughout. Pop Trading Company’s creative influences are showcased through a custom lace-lock and sockliner. New Balance’s signature ENCAP midsole has been finished in white in order to harmonise the monochromatic body, providing not only a clean style but accentuated cushioning with each step.
