In 1982, New Balance started manufacturing sneakers in Flimby, Cumbria. This year, they’re having a big “party” to celebrate 35 special years at the iconic Flimby Factory. Many of the most popular New Balance packs, collars and styles were produced in that factory.
To honor the rich heritage of shoe-making in the region and the huge skill-set of their experienced footwear specialists, New balance releases 4 much-loved classic Made in UK silhouettes that are dedicated to the New Balance manufacturers in Flimby. The M991FA, M770FA, EPICTRFA and M1500FA styles will be available in premium navy and grey materials.
Thanks to New Balance Gallery, we can now provide you an early look at the New Balance “Flimby 35th Anniversary Pack”! The colorways are classic, the materials have great quality and the production is excellent. What an amazing pack to celebrate 35 years of Flimby Manufacturing!
