New Balance 576 – Flimby Factory 30th Anniversary Pack

new balance 576 flimby factory 30th anniversary 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 M576 ‘Made in England’ – Spring 2012 Colorways

February 28th, 2012 by | 2 comments

new balance m576 made in england spring 2012 1 570x379 New Balance M576 Made in England   Spring 2012 Colorways

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

New Balance M576BPM

New Balance never fails to nail the neutral look with their copius spread of greys and navys, but New England’s biggest sneaker brand doesn’t dabble quite as much in the earthy part of the ‘blank’ spectrum.  There does, though, seem to be an abnormal concentration of brown leather releases on the New Balance M576, a model that dropped last spring in an almost identical colorway with less white, and again at the end of the year with a leather toe and ankle.  These new M576BPMs get back to the original mesh-ventilated toe, which along with its leather upper shows off the premium construction you can expect from NB’s ‘Made in England’ drops.  The fantastic Flimby Factory does it again, and you can grab these at select NB purveyors like 43einhalb.

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
