On the collaborative front, New Balance has set itself part from other players in the sneaker space, as it’s created compelling product, campaigns and partnerships with a thoughtful, often lesser-known, cast of collaborators. For its next proposition, however, the North American institution has prepped two autumn-friendly Made In England models.
Crafted in Flimby, Cumbria, U.K., the New Balance 577 and New Balance 1500 indulge in a medley of orange, brown and tan as part of the brand’s “Fall Pack” offerings. Standard high-quality and performance-informed suede and mesh make up both pairs’ uppers, with “N” logos at the profiles taking on varying aesthetics across the sneakers. The “MADE IN ENGLAND” distinction appears prominently on each option’s tongue label. Underfoot, ENCAP-cushioning delivers a tried-and-proven solution to the latest 577 and 1500 styles, while snakeskin-like mudguards inject new flair to the latter silhouette.
