New Balance 576 ‘Made in England’ – Flimby Factory 30th Anniversary
New Balance has embraced professional-themed sneakers this season, including their own in-house Workwear Pack and a Workforce Pack designed in collaboration with Detroit’s Burn Rubber boutique. Both of those were done on the legendary 574 silhouette, but don’t forget that another of NB’s pillars was released just a year after that 1988 breakthrough. The New Balance 576 returns in the familiar ‘Made in England’ build, but this trio has a different tongue tag than we’re used to, one that marks 30 years at the Flimby Factory and a quick designation of the three designs crafted by longstanding employees there. Andy Mandle, Roy Bell and Billy Edgar each created their own twist on the venerable 576, and you can see each of them after the jump below. Let us know which colorway you like best and stick with Sneaker News for more details on the backstory and the exact fall 2012 release date. via EUkicks
NB England always kills with the fabrication. These are all top notch premium. The first ones are a priority though. I wish NB USA would take advantage of more Fabrics and styles.
They're nice....but nothing spectacular. I think last year's Lake District Pack were far better than these.
