The legend of Robin Hood is one of the most time-tested fables in the history of literature. The heroic outlaw has been reimagined countless different ways, from his portrayal as a swiping and clever fox in the cartoons, to today’s live-action movie version set to hit theaters on November 21st. Through most of the tellings and showing of the master archer, one thing has remained consistent, his outfit and signature colors. Green and a burnt orange are Robin Hood’s anchors, and the luxuriously-crafted New Balance 1500 is set to hit shelves in a fitting colorway for one of the world’s first vigilantes.
Throughout the many different interpretations of this character, the most consistently used detail is a green cape, which aptly comes represented by forrest green overlays on this 1500. Other details include brown laces, for Robin Hoods leather straps and bow, and the aforementioned burnt orange or red hue portrays the feather in his cap and the base of his arrows. No word regarding the New Balance 1500 “Robin Hood” has been reported just yet, but you can expect units to begin arriving at retailers soon.
