Model: Made in England 1500 “Grey Heron”
Key Features: This END. x New Balance 1500 continues the UK retailer’s fascination with birds, taking inspiration from the Grey Heron. The grey, blue, and orange shades found across the upper and along the outsole pay homage to the coastal bird’s plumage and beak. For the collectors, END. has put together a bespoke, feather-printed box to wrap up the avian-themed release.
Release Date: August 22
Editor’s Notes: END. and New Balance are releasing another avian-inspired sneaker, which follows in the footsteps of 2019’s “Grey Gull” 878. This year’s collaboration is inspired by the Grey Heron, another coastal bird native to the UK, most commonly found near rivers and lakes. The subject of the collaboration is the iconic, Steven Smith-designed New Balance 1500, which has become a steadfast favorite in the UK over the years.
The END. x New Balance 1500 “Grey Heron” is set to be released on August 22 via END.’s online launches page.
