One of Melbourne, Australia’s most popular sneaker stores is Provider. Back in 2008, the shop had its first chance to do a special collaboration, the result is the New Balance 1500 seen here. Having a long and strong relationship with New Balance Australia aided in getting the sneaker off the ground. “The concept of the shoe is based around the phrase ‘breakin’ necks’, which is unique to sneaker heads. There are so many things you can do these days with this kind of product – tagging, printed boxes, numbering – but it’s not always needed.”

Looking to focus on a balance of materials and colors, the sneaker is comprised of a combination of Grey, Blue, Black and White. Released to very select retailers around the globe, the folks at Provider also created matching Wayfarers to match with the kicks. Are you lucky enough to have these kicks in your collection?
