The way in which sneakers are packaged today is becoming just as big of a deal as the sneakers themselves. So when New Balance set out to reissue the M1500UKG they knew they wanted to do something extra special for the collectors out there. Since the M1500UKG is made in the UK, New Balance reached out to Hanon, one of the United Kingdom’s premier retailers, to lend a hand in putting the shoes back on the streets. To make the reissue extra special, the original 1989 colorway of the M1500UKG is packaged in a handcrafted wooden sneaker box. Unfourently though, the release will be super limited with only 50 pairs becoming available through Hanon, all of which will be individually numbered on the side of the box. An official release date is unavailable at this time, so stay posted for further info and hit the jump to get a look at the shoes.
