We all enjoy things made here on home turf, especially if they bring influences from the UK in to the design and thoughts behind the product. For Spring 2015, New Balance ‘Flying the Flag’ collection features three pairs of Made in UK footwear that are inspired by the UK flag in the classic NB models of the 1500, 577 and CT300. Really like the simplicity of these, especially the 577′s. These drop in online stores Feb 1st, so keep your eyes peeled. More imagery and a video of the production after jump.

Each shoe in the pack will come with a New Balance branded drawstring bag featuring the Union Jack and “Flying the Flag” text. The shoes are made from pigskin with a perforated pigskin vamp and collar. Additional distinguishing details include a “Flying The Flag” liner and the standard woven label to highlight Made in UK.”
