Boston – Designed by New Balance’s Creative Directors, Savania Davies-Keiller and Roberto Crivello, the 1400 is introduced for fall 2009 in a nearly all-over reflective upper.
The 1400 originally launched in 1994 and quickly became known for its comfort and basic, versatile design – making it a popular choice among runners, as well as those interested in everyday casual wear. Today, the 1400 has been reintroduced with modern material and design applications.
Featuring Abzorb cushioning in the heel and Encap midsole for comfort, durability and resistance to compression, the 1400 features a solid rubber, non-marking outsole that provides an additional layer of comfort. The silhouette features an upper that is almost entirely reflective with luxury leather detailing and a pigskin lining.
Featuring teal blue accents on seal grey, the 1400 silhouette is available beginning in September. The 1400 will retail for 120.00€ and is the first of three colourways due to launch in 2009. The remaining two colourways will be introduced in October.
These two colourways and the exclusive materials are both made up by the DDC LAB, located in New York. They are well known for mixing up existent New Balnce styles with extra ordinary materials, which are not common in the sneaker business.
