New Balance 576 Made In England ‘Tea Pack’ – Official Launch Party 08.08.2013

Tuesday, July 30th, 2013

There’s nothing more quintessentially English than tea. Whether it’s in the office, at home or sat outside a tent in the middle of nowhere, it’s safe to say we are a nation of tea drinkers. This is a notion that is firmly backed up by the people of Flimby who have dedicated a whole pack to the nation’s favourite drink.

The ‘Tea Pack’ comprises of three colourways of New Balance’s ever-popular 576 style, each colourway inspired by the three most popular varieties of tea at the NB factory in Flimby; English Breakfast, Earl Grey and Peppermint. Each style includes a tongue label graphic highlighting the specific tea that inspired it’s colourway and matching lace lock. High-end material executions for this premium pack include luxury nubuck and pigskin uppers and extra laces packaged in a collectable tea bag.

To celebrate the release of this collection, we are hosting an exclusive launch party at our End Hunting Co. store on Thursday 8th August 2013. From 6–9pm, you can enjoy free drinks and purchase the sneakers along with your own limited edition tea fuser and specially blended loose tea courtesy of our friends at Ringtons.

New Balance x United Arrows – CM1500UA ‘Sand’

Monday, April 22nd, 2013

New Balance are no stranger to an all beige Japanese takeover of some of their celebrated running silhouettes, much less even, to all beige versions of their 1500 model. Taking a crack at this colour scheme now is Japanese retailer United Arrows, with an intriguing tonal make over.

The CM1500UA is constructed with all suede uppers maintaining the integrity of the materials by refusing to give in to a degree of perforation and only making allowance for a comparatively minute amount of mesh.

This tonality extends to everything on the uppers, from the embroidered tongue branding, classic woven ‘N’ and laces, which can be exchanged for a bold set of orange replacements, should you require a hit of colour. These subtle, smooth and sleek uppers sit on top of a creamy white midsole complete with Encap cushioning and durable rubber outsole.

To get your fair share of Japanese design, full tonality and classic comfort, pick up a pair of the New Balance x United Arrows CM1500UA from our New Balance section from 00:01am BST on the 27/04/2013.
 

 

 

 

 

New Balance 25th Anniversary Edition 576

Tuesday, January 29th, 2013

The ’576′ is regarded by many as the quintessential New Balance style, straddling the boundaries between functional sportswear and accessible everyday footwear. The Flimby-based trainer manufacturer are paying homage to this classic style by giving the shoe a premium makeover marking its 25th anniversary.

Available in two classic colourways, Navy (576NGA) and Grey (576SGA), the design and composition is sympathetic to the 1988 OG silhouette. The shoe is given a premium touch with the use of Pigskin overlays on authentic nylon mesh underlays with soft leather to the heel tab and collar. All the standard performance related technology you’d expect are incorporated such as ENCAP cushioning to the sole unit. A touch of nostalgia completes the pack by way of an oxidised heel counter and original branding to the insole, limited edition shoebag and OG shoebox.

For a closer look at the New Balance 25th Anniversary 576, please visit our New Balance section of the webstore.

New Balance 30th Anniversary M576 Pack – Behind the Scenes at Flimby

Monday, July 2nd, 2012

This August marks 30 years of New Balance production in the Cumbrian town of Flimby, and to commemorate this New Balance are releasing a highly limited series of trainers, designed by three stalwarts of the UK plant. This small coastal town has been a home for shoe-makers for over a century, so when New Balance were looking for a UK base in the summer of 1982, Flimby was the obvious choice. Their factories were full of workers that had generations of manufacturing experience, highly skilled in working with premium materials to produce the finest products, and this was something that can still be seen today in every pair of ‘Made in the UK’ NBs.

Although several classic silhouettes – such as the 1500 and 577 – are closely associated with the ‘Made in the UK’ moniker, it is probably the 576 that is the most recognised, as such the 1988 runner was the obvious choice for the collection. These premium reworkings have been designed in collaboration with three long-serving shop floor workers Andy Mandle, Roy Bell and Billy Edgar, with each employee adding their own unique ideas – such as corudory linings and bespoke tongue labels – to this iconic trainer.

The 30th Anniversary M576 Pack is set to release in early August and is available to pre order now. We can’t think of a better way of recognising one of the finest trainer-manufacturing institutions, particularly when they are on our own doorsteps. Head over to the New Balance Pre Order section now for a closer look, and if you’ve got a spare five minutes, we’d recommend checking out New Balance’s VisitFlimby website, to see even more about what goes on at the famous factory…
