Sneaker Spotlight: New Balance x Solebox 1500 “Nazar Eye”

New Balance x Solebox 1500 "Nazar Eye"“May the nazar eye protect your shoes against envy/evil eyes.”

Solebox and New Balance have had a great relationship and the “Nazar Eye” was yet another successful partnership between the two brands. This build of the New Balance 1500 was a more simple and basic take of the model compared to previous versions, but that didn’t make them any less popular. The simple build let the materials and details do the talking for the Nazar Eye New Balance 1500.

As a “Made in England” product only the best materials are used on the sneaker build. Soft black tumbled leather is featured on the upper coupled with suede panels including the all-grey mudguard. Light blue stitching on the 1500 and NB heel branding match the eye accent. To finish off the smooth look is a classic white midsole with gum bottom combination. As we mentioned before the details are what makes the New Balance 1500 stand out. This includes the small hint of 3M on the toexbox, special “Nazar Eye” lace end and Solebox lacelocks. A special collaboration that many had their “eye” on, this limited release sold through quickly. Where does this sneaker rank amongst the many Solebox sneaker collaborations over the years?
