Proud American’s living in ‘The Bay State’ will claim sportswear heavyweight, New Balance, as one of their own, especially those living in the state’s largest city, Boston, where the brand’s HQ is currently based. However, it seems us Brits can’t let things slide without declaring a portion of NB’s heritage as somewhat ours.
It turns out brand founder, William J. Riley, has family links that trace all the way back to good old England – lineage that has led the brand to bolster their UK presence, doing so via their ‘Made in UK’ range, which is now firmly set for season 2.
Crafted in New Balance’s world-renowned Flimby factory (situated about a two-hour drive north of Manchester), these Trail 575 trainers take their ‘soft haze’ palette from the diffused tones of early morning fog. Pigskin suede and mesh are constructed across the uppers, while the signature ‘N’ branding situates to the sidewall. Designed to blend performance and style – this pair do exactly that – thanks to their Revlite midsole and rugged Vibram® outsole.
Conquer any ‘off grid’ adventures you have planned in style. New Balance Trail 575 trainers are now available at Aphrodite Clothing.
