If shoes like the 574 or 996 would be on any New Balance greatest hits compliation, the 1700 would definitely be a deep cut, something overlooked by the casual, passing through fans, but appreciated by the true aficionados.
The 1700 was a technological step up from earlier classic models, which was reflected in the comparitively busier silhouette. The ‘Abzorb’ cushioning system, which was state of the art at the time of the shoe’s original release, is a prominent feature of the 1700. The suede upper features perforations on the toebox and above the midsoles.
The chunky tech silhouette combines with the self-possessed, grey colorway for a New Balance shoe that is bold in design, but quietly confident at the same time.
