It didn't get much more high-tech than this. When New Balance introduced the all-new 1500 in 1988, it was part of a three-shoe pack including a tennis shoe and a basketball shoe. And while the latter two have been lost to history (and Defy NY), the 1500 runner has been elevated to the highest ranks of classic running shoes. Grey and navy is the way to go.
