Our latest HYPEBEAST PROCESS takes us to the production facilities of New Balance in Flimby, England. On the production line we see the footwear brand’s latest creation — the 576 “Three Peaks” pack. Paying homage to the traditional British Three Peaks challenge, which dares participants to climb three of UK’s highest peaks within 24 hours, the classic 576 model receives a makeover that readies for the outdoors. The “Ben Nevis,” “Scarfell” and “Snowden” all feature aspects that are often seen in modern climbing equipment, and each pair see their corresponding mountains stitched at the tongue along with a compass icon on the insole. Retailing for £130 GBP (approximately $220 USD), the New Balance “Three Peaks Pack” will be available January 1 at select retailers including size?, Foot Patrol, End, Hanon, Offspring and Crooked Tongues.
For this momentous release, New Balance put us against the Three Peaks challenge in which we tested the 576 on Scarfell Mountain, that is before we learned of the 576’s production stages and were given a chance to make custom one-offs of the trainer. It was just by chance that New Balance made two extra pairs (size 9.5 US) that were never used. For those interested, we will be selecting two winners to receive a pair of these one-of-a-kind 576s.
The contest begins Dec 20, 2013 at 12:00 p.m. EST and concludes on Dec 30, 2013 at 12:00 p.m. EST. Winners will be randomly chosen and announced only on our YouTube channel and this post on Jan 5th, 2014. Details can be seen below.
