New Balance T500

Released back in 1982, the New Balance T500 was introduced to bring superior quality to an on-court classic. Now made for contemporary lifestyle, the shoe preserves the hallmarks of its retro tennis charm with rich pigskin suede and nubuck uppers.

To highlight the T500’s ‘quiet luxury’ feel, we visited Salford University’s anechoic chamber – proclaimed as the “quietest place in the world”. The room is scientifically designed, an abstract space covered with jagged sculptures – foam wedges that absorb any sound vibrations in the air.

The New Balance T500 is available online now and in our Leeds & Manchester stores.
