The expected release date for the New Balance 1540V4 will be on March 24, 2022.

The New Balance 1540V4 will have the following features & updates:

  • One of the most prevalent enhancements of the new New Balance 1540V4 will be the reinforced heel and toe and additional durability features.
  • The fit will be slightly more roomy and wide in the toe area, with a snug heel.
  • There will be more color and design options available in the new model.
  • Much of the technology, such as the TPU posts and Rollbar stability features, will remain the same but will be designed to be lighter in weight.
