New Balance 1600 Elite Edition ‘Detective’


New Balance keeps it mysterious with their latest colorway that pays very loose homage to those experts of investigation otherwise known as detectives. If you don’t exactly see the theme offhand don’t feel bad we didn’t either but let us break down the elements of this New Balance 1600 Elite Edition colorway for you.

While they don’t have a uniform in popular culture gumshoes are typically outfitted in an overcoat and hat that acts as a sort of urban camouflage that helps them navigate through the streets unnoticed. The shoe in turn is dressed in forest green, olive and tan suede with hits of red that are hard to explain (blod splatters? flashing sire lights?) but give the colorway the necessary amount of pop nonetheless.

These are available now on the NB site or at select New Balance retailers including Premier which means that they aren’t hard to find at all. So if your next purchase was a mystery consider the case closed.
