Inspired by the avian, END. and New Balance continue their collaborative relationship with the 1500 "Grey Heron".
Following up on the “Grey Gull” from 2019, New Balance continues their collaborative relationship with END. with the upcoming launch of the “Grey Heron”, an avian interpretation of the classic 1500 silhouette.
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 sure to turn heads with its dazzling demonstration of the quintessential New Balance design. Housed inside a bespoke co-branded box detailed with a feather printed exterior, the 1500 “Grey Heron” champions the beauty of the natural world.
A central inspiration for this new sneaker collaboration, the noble birds are celebrated as a distinctive and elegant part of British fauna. Add the END. x New Balance 1500 “Grey Heron” to your rotation this season – the perfect way to introduce a boost of avian aesthetics to your ensemble.
Furthering the ongoing commitment to U.K., the END. x New Balance 1500 “Grey Heron” is manufactured at the brand’s historic Flimby site. New Balance’s commitment to heritage and authenticity continues here with product innovation and a modern design aesthetic.
