With 2016 officially underway, New Balance joins forces with British footwear experts Grenson for a new collaborative sneaker that gives the 576 silhouette a heritage twist.
Both New Balance and Grenson have strong roots in making footwear in the UK, while one brand produces athletic sneakers, the other crafts bench-made shoes. The difference isn't stopping the brands from connecting, as they're now dropping their very own sneaker collaboration.
We see the shoe is constructed with Grenson’s Italian grade-A tan calfskin leather and a brogued upper, merging New Balance’s athletic credentials with a traditional hard-bottomed brogue.
The New Balance x Grenson Brogue Sneaker will be available very soon at Shelflife for R6499.00 - stock will be very limited and no pre-orders will be accepted.
The 576 has been expertly crafted in both Grenson’s Northampton factory and New Balance’s Flimby factory, to ensure premium quality.
