New Balance are celebrating their Flimby factory’s 35th year of manufacturing with a new Made in England collection. We caught a glimpse of the whole crew a couple of months ago, and now we’ve got an on-foot look. The confidently subdued range maintains aspects that made New Balance such a cult hit in areas like Philadelphia, wearing muted tones that flash higher price points without looking gaudy.
Premium takes of the 1500 and 770 have long been staples in the fashion-forward cultures of Japan et al., but the 991 in particular has been taking off lately. You’d do well to get involved with the quirkily plain English drop before they reach saturation.
The New Balance Flimby collection is available now from Overkill.
