The Ensign Classic — a performance sneaker known for durability, comfort and stability — has been given an injection of color and had its focus moved to everyday wear. Its thick outsole and oversized midsole makes for a cushioned heel strike, while the upper and the tongue is made using lightweight breathable material.
Throughout the 1960s, Norman Walsh became renowned for making long-lasting, specialist sports sneakers for a variety of sports, all hand-crafted to suit individual customer needs. Such is the Ensign Classic sneaker’s durability, it was worn by runners from the Lancashire area in the 1981 New York Marathon. While other brands took to adding newer materials and compositions, Walsh retained its ‘less is more’ ideology.
Hand-crafted in Lancashire, UK, this reworked Ensign Classic comes in five colourways: mint, blue, coral, red and navy. Each sneaker is available to order online now from the Norman Walsh web store.
