New Balance have got really cross with the latest collection to come out of their UK factory in Flimby. Chillax homeboy, they’re not going to put an encap in yo ass, they’ve just taken the different crosses combined in our glorious Union Jack flag for inspiration in their latest trainer trio. Which means we have 1500, 577 and CT300 models available in red, white or blue in glorious combinations of perforated pigskin perfection. Each shoe features a ‘Flying the Flag’ liner plus a lovely woven flag on the heel to highlight their proud Made in the UK credentials. Seeing these has got me feeling all patriotic, I think I may just have to cancel that application I made to be Jamaican citizen after all.
