NB1500 pickup

I picked up my first two pair of 1500s today and I must say, they are great. The quality of materials and craftsmanship is far superior to the recent Nike retros of retros. You can’t go wrong with the clean and simple colorways as well.

A big massive “thank you” goes out to the guys over at Hanon. I ordered these on Wednesday and they arrived today. Hanon is in Scotland. Crazy turnaround indeed. All the other shops in the world have a lot to learn from these guys and their customer service. Keep up the good work!



  1. Nice.

  2. You should try the UK made 1500s, the shape and the quality are much better !
