Fans of their classic runners seek out New Balance sneakers with ‘Made in UK’ tags because the quality that comes from the Flimby Factory in Cumbria, England are among the consistently highest quality releases from any brand.  Flimby celebrates 30 years of crafting New Bals this summer with a trio of one of their best-loved silhouettes specially designed by longterm employees at the factory.  The New Balance 576 30th anniversary pack reminds us as much on its unique tongue tag, but the real draw here is the trio of working class colorways chosen by Andy Mandle (grey/red), Billy Edgar (brown leather) and Roy Bell (grey/navy) and their unique sockliners.  Click through to see more angles and look for these to arrive toward the end of Q3.  via FNG

New Balance 576 ‘Flimby Factory 30th Anniversary’

New Balance is known for appending acronyms to the end of their numbered releases to provide unique identifiers, and while most of those (especially the in-house designs) reflect the colors in use, a select few have extra letters to denote details about its special makeup.  That holds true for the Flimby Factory 30th Anniversary Pack, a trio of New Balance 576s crafted by longtime employees of NB’s Flimby, UK factory.  Andy Mandle chose charcoal and red with a tartan sockliner, Billy Edgar goes earthy and opts for a two-tone zig-zag on the inside and Roy Bell rounds out the group with a chilly grey and blue suede design lined with corduroy.  All of them have ’30 Years of Manufacture in the U.K. 1982-2012′ tags to drive home the theme, and you’ll find them available this August at shops like Overkill, who’re pre-selling theirs today.

New Balance 576 – Flimby Factory 30th Anniversary Pack

Nike Sportswear’s Air Force 1 30th anniversary seems to be slightly slowing as we approach the Olympic summer as well as the Air Max 1 and Air Safari birthdays.  Elsewhere in the sneaker birthday world, New Balance continues following their own deliberate pace, steadily moving forward as we approach the release of a drop commemorating three decades of attention to detail at their UK factories.  The New Balance 576 will release in three colorways later this year designed by workers at the Flimby, England, manufacturing plant, their wordy tongue tags dictating that if we were to label these like some of their other products, they’d come with a ’30 Years of Manufacture in the UK’ nickname.  Maybe the ‘Excellence Makers’ tag NB used for an earlier video that showed Andy Mandle, Billy Edgar and Roy Bell’s SMUs would be the most appropriate title, but the understated designs on this trio suggest that kind of detail isn’t as important as the craftsmanship that went into them.  Let us know which is your favorite ‘Made in UK’ New Balance after you click through for more photos, and stick with Sneaker News to see when these make it across the Atlantic.  via HS

“We make good products; people all over the world want New Balance Cumbria trainers.”

That Union Jack you see on some of the finest New Balance Classics releases? That’s not just a Redcoat theme or a symbol of some collaboration. The citizens of Cumbria County made those kicks at NB’s Flimby, UK factory, a location that’s come to represent top-notch quality and timeless style. The factory is set in a pastoral region whose fields remain as untouched as impeccable designs like the New Balance 576 ‘Made in England’ soon to release in honor of Flimby’s 30th anniversary. Andy Mandle, Roy Bell and Billy Edgar are the three longest tenured veterans of the plant, and each got a chance to create their own design to commemorate the occasion, and you can get a sense for what it takes to build them by watching the video after the jump.

New Balance already has some of the boldest branding in the classic running sneaker market, but its outlines are the same color as the side panel ‘N’, the result is as aggressive and eye-catching as anything this side of Futura Condensed.  These fresh new ‘Made in England’ New Balance M576s maximize the crisp appeal by coloring each of three pairs in a single shade of suede that results in the kind of simple yet effective style upon which this brand’s foundation rests.  Click through for more views of black, navy and green pairs and look for them this March at retailers like SNKRS.  via FNG
