New Balance’s latest “Made in UK” pack pays tribute to the county of Cumbria, where its English factory is based. The three-shoe pack is manufactured in that factory and includes the CT300 court shoe, 1500, and a return of the rare 770, all featuring premium suede and leather. Each sneaker in the pack comes in the forest green, white and royal blue of the Cumbrian flag, which also features on the tongue and the insole graphic. The New Balance “Cumbrian” pack is dropping in select retailers, including Germany’s asphaltgold, in May.
As well as their “Made in UK” collection, New Balance has also made some additions to its premium American-made range.
