New Balance T500 – A Timeless Classic Revived

The superior quality and elegant simplicity that made the T500 a great tennis shoe in 1982 make it a timeless classic today. Following a successful reintroduction with long-time collaborator Aimé Leon Dore back in September 2023, New Balance is bringing back the T500, a modern nod to quiet luxury.

A Nod to Tennis Heritage

The T500 reintroduces an early ’80s tennis style known for its high-quality build and timeless good looks. In detail, the upper features pigskin suede, nubuck construction, and perforated toe-box detailing for a premium take on a familiar look. Moreover, the polyurethane midsole offers an understated hint of 1980s tech that stands out from the vulcanized soles of older court models. Finally, the design is rounded out with the elegant simplicity of a predominantly white colorway, suitable for any situation and surface.

Quiet Luxury Personified

“We wanted to stay true to the original with refined neutral tones and introduce something new, yet familiar. The meticulously crafted model embodies the essence of quiet luxury with sophisticated, elegant lines making it a timeless, authentic New Balance classic. The T500 fits perfectly within our Lifestyle portfolio, fusing comfort, quality craftsmanship, and refined aesthetic that will undoubtedly be a closet staple,” says Paul Kaseumouk, Senior Product Manager at New Balance.

Celebrating the Revival

Meanwhile, with the relaunch of the T500, New Balance will release the campaign film “Quiet Please”. The hero film, which subtly salutes the shoe’s tennis origins, was shot by emerging director Francis Plummer and features Chris Cadaver as the protagonist. The 20-second campaign captures the smooth Cadaver navigating a chaotic world of excessive luxury. As a result, it blends cinematic visuals with the brand’s signature wit to reintroduce the retro silhouette. The T500 will be available globally beginning on March 14th for a suggested retail price of 129,95€.
