Global athletics brand New Balance and traditional British bench-made shoe makers Grenson come together to redefine premium sneaker collaborations with the Made in England 576GRB.
Manufactured across both Grenson’s Northampton factory, and New Balance’s UK factory in Flimby, Cumbria, utilising the craftsmanship, expertise and premium materials of both parties, the 576GRB is a collaboration in the truest sense of the word.
Grenson’s best Italian grade A calf-skin leather has been expertly worked into the 576 pattern at Flimby, before being shipped back to the craftsmen at Grenson to apply their signature burnishing and broguing details. The components were then returned to the New Balance factory to be assembled by their skilled workers into the final sneaker.
One of New Balance’s most ambitious ever sneakers to make, due to the complexity and delicacy of the process, the 576GRB represents a new standard in luxury athletic footwear.
The Grenson x New Balance 576GRB will be available 9th Jan 2016 from Grenson. Strictly limited pairs will be available globally at specialty retailers23rd Jan 2016.
