Look, we could sit here and give you a spiel on just how good Junya Watanabe’s back catalog is, or how different these two low-key collaborations are from his mainstay designs, but we don’t need to. Even if you’re not familiar with the former CDG designer, this two-piece pack of New Balance 1500s speaks volumes for his eye to detail, and focus on quality.



Sure, the monochromatic makeups are minimal — but minimal is hard to do right. Junya has nailed both, with the triple black pairing featuring an intriguing placement of leather, mesh, and suede across the upper, while the tri-tone black/white/grey edition focusing on perfect blocking balance. The latter perfectly positions colors vertically (blacks and whites) and diagonally (greys) resulting in a sneaker I just can’t seem to detach my sight from. The triple black achieves a similar theme, utilizing the sheen of the leather, mesh, and midsole, sandwiching the matte suede of the mudguard.

Take a peep at both pairs in detail below, and look for both of these painstakingly-perfect pairs sitting online at retailers like END and Farfetch right now! Go get ’em!
