England’s skies and New Balance’s runners both have a reputation for being cast in drab grey so seeing either of them splashed in bright hues is doubly fun.

The tone is set on this New Balance 1500 ‘Made In England’ colorway by balancing a teal suede build against a grey mesh for a bit of subtle contrast. This is heightened by the use of black nubuck on the tongue and side panel while a white outsole lies beneath. These are a picture perfect example of how a splash of color can change your perspective towards a sneaker.

If you’re having a particularly grey day you can catch a pair of these “pick me ups” at your nearest New Balance retailer.
