New Balance US drops official info about their first collab with Undefeated. From the press release:
The inspiration behind the New Balance Desert Storm 1500 is based upon military designs from the Gulf War. The light and dark brown panels with red and blue hits are colorways inspired from a Desert Storm operations patch. The premium suede fabrication of the shoe has been chosen to correspond with real army boots that were worn in the Gulf War. The chocolate chip camo, which is found on the shoe bed, interior lining, and shoe bag, is a specification to commemorate the design’s introduction in the Gulf War. 1500s feature embroidery detail on foxing and tongue of each shoe and collection call out on shoe insole.
The New Balance Desert Storm 1500 will be available beginning on
May 1 at select Undefeated retailers.
UPDATE: These will be released on May 15th, Armed Forces Day
