New Balance continues their collaborative relationship with END with an upcoming “Grey Heron” offering of the classic 1500 silhouette inspired by avian.
Looking to the skies, the two brands have derived inspiration from the proud Grey Heron, a freshwater and coastal bird known for its dazzling plumage, vibrant Orange beak and crested head. Mimicking the heron’s feathered features, END and New Balance cast the classic 1500 silhouette in a blend of Grey, Orange, White and Blue, distilling the essence of the wading bird into a legendary sneaker.
Constructed with plush suede, nubuck and mesh in lieu of feathers, this Made in England model encapsulates the elegance and charm of the Grey Heron. Complete with a cascade of Blue and Orange underfoot, the retro runner is housed inside a bespoke co-branded box detailed with a feather printed exterior.
