New Balance MRL996 Grey

01. Suede & mesh.
02. Grey.

Words

All of my favourite New Balance styles lately seem to be in a plain grey colourway. Plain grey 998's are all over the Japanese shops but these classic 996's are a little easier to acquire for those of us in the west, from shops such as Sweden's Tres Bien Shop. They're even more throwback than 998's, with a slimmer profile.

New Balance 1500 GWS

01. Made in England.
02. Encap Sole.

Words

The 1500 might be my favorite New Balance model. The shape, smaller 'N' logo and the size of the tongue all make for a nice looking trainer.

New Balance 587

01

Image

—01. Made in USA.

Words

My favourite style of New Balance runner, and we all know there are tons of incredible options, is the often overlooked 587. The 587 is one of the elite few styles that New Balance makes that are made in the USA. They are incredibly unhip and orthopaedic looking, in their navy and grey exterior, but I love them anyway. There is something for me that transcends their chunky awkwardness, and it goes beyond their extreme comfort.

—01. Made in USA.

I recently came across this brand magazine which has been published in Japan for New Balance. It features a number of people in the industry, editorial shoots and product focuses. It's very nicely put together and a must have for any New Balance fan.

New Balance 991

—01. Abzorb Air sole technology.

Words

For superior comfort and ease, it's difficult to beat New Balance. Their 900 series has peaked in popularity in recent years, but the 991 is still a little bit more difficult to track down.

New Balance at End

Featured Items

—01. Navy suede 577 with grey accents.
—02. Slighty more unusual olive 574s.
—03. Timeless 998s with hints of burgundy

Words

New Balance aren't all that hard to find these days, but just up the A69 from Flimby in Newcastle, End always seem to have one of the better selections of the classic running shoes at any given moment. Choice versions of the quintessential 577 and 998 are in two colours of suede — navy with grey and grey with burgundy respectively. The often overlooked 574 is in a nice olive suede right now as well, as well as a couple of decent options in perhaps my favourite model the 1500.
