In 2016, athletic company New Balance teamed up with UK shoemaking experts Grenson to launch the “One Shoe, Two Factories” collaboration and celebrate the two partners’ shared love for premium craftsmanship. Now both brands ring the ball for Phase Two and resume their joint works on the New Balance 576. As a matter of fact, fans of high quality sneakers get spoiled with three different pairs this time.
The original men’s 576 receives a full grain Italian calf leather upper in burnished tan, dark brown and burnt Oak suede. For the women’s version, Italian full grain tan calf has been combined with winter white ruff-out suede. A “kiltie” references traditional bench made shoes of the past on this version as another exquisite detail. And to add even more luxury appeal to this pack, a Goodyear Welted version of the 576 has been crafted at the Grenson factory in Northamptonshire.
