New Balance has once more decided that the 1400 should not be a strictly suede sneaker.
With that decision comes a chunkier price tag again – this version retails at $240. The shoe uses a nubuck and cotton drill combination along with tan leather in the accents, a look that should be familiar for anyone following the brand's recent output on heritage silhouettes.
Like most other New Balance retro styles this one won't involve a lot of waiting for a release date. The sneakers are already available now at accounts including Sneaker Politics.
