2012′s biggest sneaker anniversaries have undoubtedly been the Dream Team’s 20th and the Air Force 1′s 30th, but let’s not forget about another three decade veteran just because it’s an entire factory and not just one shoe.  New Balance has been manufacturing top-notch running shoes in Cumbria, England for thirty years now, and that Flimby Factory gets its due with a trio of veterans creating their own special colorways.  The New Balance M576 pictured above was authored by Andy Mandle in commemoration of 30 years of Flimby, but you’ll have far less time to grab a pair with only limited sizes still available at SNS.

New Balance 576 “Roy Bell”

Sneaker News just showed you that cutting room craftsman Andy Mandle’s design has arrived at retail, and now we see the second of three Flimby 30th anniversary designs available for a fellow employee ten years his senior.  Roy Bell sees Mandle’s twelve years at Flimby and raises him another decade, which means this New Balance M576 with his name on the inner tongue has nearly as much experience behind it as this time-tested model itself.  It’s classic New Bal with plenty of grey and navy blue, tons of suede and a visually apparent quality that’s the true star of this trio.  Have a closer look below, then find your 1982-2012 commemorative NB576s at SNS.

New Balance 576 “Derby Pack”

The word ‘derby’ has quite a few different meanings, but just about all of them trace their roots back to the town of Derbyshire, England.  That’s where the 12th Earl kicked off the first horse races at Epsom Downs in 1780, as well as the birthplace of the basis of the iconic blucher.  Somewhere between horse racing and footwear design is this New Balance 576 ’Derby Pack’, a trio representing ‘Fighter’, ‘Legend’ and ‘Ladies’ characters and their connections to thoroughbred racing.  Let us know which jockey’s design looks best once you’ve seen them all below and stick with Sneaker News for release info on this (presumably ‘Made in England’) spring 2013 trio.  via EUkicks

New Balance 576 “Vintage Pack”

A huge portion of New Balance Classics could be considered ‘vintage’ based on their age, but it’s exceedingly rare to see the US/UK running specialists purposely apply aged details to one of their standby models.  Whatever caused the delay seems to have been worthwhile, because these new pairs coming up for next year not only give a clear indication that this release celebrates the New Balance 576‘s 25th anniversary, but also manage to beautify the shoe in the process.  Black and grey suedes are made to look older thanks to the ‘faded’ blue-leaning meshes, and the aged heel counter to which we alluded brings the whole thing together with a warm ‘discoloration’.  New Balance has managed a new chapter in the history of VNTG sneaker releases; click through to see more of the ‘Vintage Pack’ NB576s and stick with Sneaker News for updates.  via EUkicks

The New Balance 576 is enjoying quite a year as are many NB classic runners in 2012, and this newest design capitalizes on the momentum of those earlier drops in more ways than one.  These ‘Made in England’ NB576s could have just as easily shown up in the spring trio that included black, green and navy designs all with white-on-white big-N branding, its Port Royal suede suggesting maybe they were purposely aged to improve the character.  The 576 has indeed found an ease of refinement in its near quarter-century of service, and the latest elegant effort is available now at SNS.
