Despite being based in Boston, New Balance have a longstanding English heritage – so it’s no surprise that the New Balance Made in England ‘English Tender’ pack pays homage to the Pound Sterling. Manufactured in the hallowed Flimby factory, the classic NB577 gets decked out in a variety of premium suede colourways referencing different notes – the red version is reminiscent of the £50 and the purple nods at the £20. The upper of each sneaker boasts mesh inserts and a footbed pattern inspired by the graphics found on the currency. Completing the theme, the tongue displays a unique NB 577 x £££ ‘Made in England’ tag.
The English Tender pack is available now at select New Balance retailers including SOLEHEAVEN.
