In a world of rising sneaker costs, you’d hope that the product you are purchasing bears some reflection of the higher price in its materials, but unfortunately that’s is not always the case. Well if you’re searching for quality construction and top notch goods, then look no further than New Balance’s made in the UK lineup of shoes, which opts for more locally sourced production to ensure that you get your money’s worth. This new video from their recently launched Visit Flimby project takes an inside look at the starting point for these SMU’s, the Flimby factory in the northern part of England, complete with ‘The Vault’ which houses a history of their team ups with European retailers. Dotting the walls are collabos with key boutiques; 24 Kilates, Colette, and Solebox just to name a few. Follow us after the jump to get the full vid of The Vault in all its retro trainer glory.
