In celebration of the 576 trainer’s 30th anniversary, today New Balance has announced a unique collaboration with leading international designer, Paul Smith. Along with the New Balance 576 MiUK classic running shoe (one of the most popular trainer styles to be manufactured in New Balance’s Flimby factory in Cumbria) a limited edition MiUK One boot has also been released.
This boot release follows on from New Balance’s first MiUK One boot with a modern twist from Paul Smith. The boot is made using White K-leather and features the Paul Smith signature stripe on the insole, tongue and back heel, while keeping the classic New Balance ‘N’ logo and Made in the UK detail.
The MiUK One x Paul Smith boot uses the latest in fabric technology with a Lightweight Super-Flex Nylon sole plate to deliver superior traction, comfort and durability. The Asymmetrical internal heel counter offers crucial protection for the Achilles and the removable Fresh Foam cushioned footbed provides unsurpassed comfort.
The collection also includes three hand-stitched, leather footballs. The footballs feature the signature stripe Paul Smith print all over and the innovative 18-panel configuration to help reduce drag. The collaboration footballs include a Leather Football, a Pro Destroy Football and a Furon Miniball.
