New Balance teamed up with Danish brand Norse Projects on a collaboration for Fall 2013. Known for their subtle and timeless approach to fashion, the Norse team stayed true to their look also for this latest team-up. They decided to work on the Made in UK NB1500 sneaker. New Balance aficionados will notice the logo modification on the two sneakers. The NB1500 usually always comes with an embroidered side logo, but the logo placement on this latest collaboration was taken from another NB classic, the NB993 and added to the Norse Projects design. A small detail honoring the aesthetic and heritage of past New Balance models.
The color schemes for the Danish Weather Pack are inspired by the Danish autumn season when the green forests and parks around Copenhagen gradually change to a kaleidoscope of brown and burned orange tones, leading to the never-ending days with rain, bursting grey skies, and the dark waters surrounding the shores of Denmark. The Norse Projects x New Balance “Danish Weather” pack will be released on August 9 at Norse Store from 5 p.m. and online at 8 p.m. CET.
