Problem: Slip of the tongue

Running sneakers have come on strong this year but if you've been stashing former performance beasts in the closet because of their incomparable comfort, you are probably familiar with the 1500 that was introduced in 1988. The New Balance 1500 is one of those shoes that once you wear a pair, you have an uncontrollable urge to add more of them to your collection. The tongue is one of the most important elements as it, often times, displays the "Made in England" that makes the 1500 a sneakerhead favorite. However, the tongue of the 1500 slips and slides all over the place like an '80s Wham-O invention.
