Toothpaste Pack

Tuesday, September 11th, 2007

Check out this hot collab between solebox  and New Balance.  Sneaker Freaker broke these and we are still waiting for a release date.  These 1500 feature a nice mix of suede, patent, and mesh.  The colors work great together and the white leather/mesh mix make the texture of the suede really stand out.  Very Nice!

NB 1500 x La MJC x Colette

Tuesday, July 3rd, 2007


Established in 2001, Parisian communications agency and all-around urban trend setter, La MJC is celebrating its 6th birthday this summer. To mark the occasion, it is releasing another New Balance 1500 with Colette. This one is made in the UK and limited to 190 pairs worldwide. Release date is July 7th exclusively at the Colette shop in Paris and online at Sold Out.


Notable is the heavy use of “black carbon” material from the Flimby UK factory, matched with the gray suede that is the hallmark of NB running sneakers. For the first time the 1500 will feature an all-fuchsia sole to match one of the dominant colors on Included in the package are both black and fuchsia laces. The lining and inner sole are made of black leather for added comfort and style.

Here’s a preview of three very nice looking Japanese CM1500’s for summer 2007. The DW (brown/white) and BP (black/purple) are said to be dropping this May at selected Tier 1 European shops. Then in August they will become more widely available in Europe along with the BW (black/white) colorway. All three share a perforated white toebox.

Thanks to seioz @ the CT forums for the heads up and r2b2 for release dates. Photos via Shoe Planet.

Personally I’m all about the DW’s!!
