The Elite Edition Collection presents premium offerings for the sneaker enthusiast, including pigs suede upper detailing, rich comfortable linings and foot beds; and ABZORB (R) and ENCAP (R) technology. While the classic New Balance 999 and 1500 silhouettes within the Elite Edition collection are inspired by recent collaborations with Nice Kicks and Concepts in 2011, The New Balance 1600 to date has not yet been included in a partnership, but has a lure of its own within street wear fashion. However, the 1600 will cement its street credibility in 2013, with 2 top-tier collaborations.
The New Balance CM1600 returns in bright colors to help you move into Spring. The upper features a suede build balancing grey with deep red or light blue. Grey mesh, leather suede add textual variation play off the upper and bright white laces wrap it all together. The 1600 is also equipped with New Balance’s signature “Abzorb” cushioning unit for added comfort.
