In an ongoing look into New Balance’s 2010 fall/winter collection, the classic CM1500 makes an appearance with the following colorways. Two undeniably more reserved approaches in gray as well as burgundy are included with updated materials: a black perforated upper with pop colors in pink and blue. The sneakers will be available in the latter half of 2010.

Originally introduced back in 1985 as runners, the M1300 soon became one of the most sought-after models from New Balance. Since the initial release of the model, the M1300 (more specifically the M1300 J) in its original colorway and design has been re-issued only every five years. Like most New Balance sneakers, the M1300 features the signature ENCAP cushion. The M1300 will be released in limited quantities on March 6th for a set retail price of ¥29,400 at retailers such as mita sneakers. Fans have been waiting for this release since 2005 so don’t miss out on this one.

One of the occupational hazards for bloggers dealing with future trends and products is that sometimes you get hung up on something that will only be released next season or later, while you want it NOW. My own difficulty in delaying satisfaction arose when I first saw Acne’s S/S 2010 collection – those trainers the Swedish brand had conjured for the next Spring/Summer season immediately hit my wants and desires checklist. But as it now happens maybe I won’t have to wait anymore… Well, to be accurate Acne’s trainers won’t be available for a while, but my favorite online shop oki-ni has just received a cool selection of New Balance shoes that provide a nice cure for my condition. Originally trail running shoes first released in 1979, the New Balance U455 has been reinvented as a lightweight lifestyle shoe, leaving me with a new problem – which colorway to pick?
