United Arrows sub brand Green Label Relaxing is known for their continued work with New Balance. Their latest collaboration for Fall 2012 might actually be our favorite to date, if not even one of our favorite New Balance collaborations in a while.
The 1500 is the base for this new collaboration. GLR chose to use premium brown leather on the entire upper, reminding of a more casual lace-up shoe. Matching brown laces and a light grey lining stay in line with the overall classic and subtle style of the sneaker. The outcome is a very premium looking sneaker that can go with a jeans just as well as with a chino. The slim New Balance 1500 sneaker silhouette is also a perfect choice for the look.
As a nice little add-on, Green Label Relaxing and New Balance also produced a collaborative shoe cream that comes along with each sneaker, making this a well thought through and round package.
The United Arrows Green Label Relaxing x New Balance CM 1500UG sneaker will release later this month, so be sure to stay up on it.
