I’ve known that this video has been in the pipeline for quite some time now, so I’m really pleased to finally see it revealed to the world. Angel is one of the worlds most talented shoe photographers and very much someone I try to emulate and be influenced by. I can’t wait to get back out to New York and e his British ‘Tramp Trainer’ equivalent. Keep up the good work buddy.
We Brits like nothing better than a nice cup of tea. The guys over at New Balances Flimby factory know this and so used the fact as inspiration for the imaginatively named Tea pack. To mark the launch of this quintessentially English release, the good folks over at End threw a party and filmed the frivolities for posterity.
Having faced up to the fact that I am never going to find a pair of 576TL’s in a decent condition, my size and even less likely for a realistic price, I took the plunge and tried to emulate a close approximation using the New Balance 574 custom site.
Whilst the Pacific Green colour is a little darker than Teal, I’m still pretty pleased with the result and can’t wait to give them their first outing.
Having done a couple of all suede New Balance custom 574’s, I wanted to check out what the leather option was like. I also have a couple of saved designs with purple heavy colour blocking and wanted to check out how vivid it was in real life. This design helped me out with both questions…..the leather is good quality, and the purple is nice and vivid.
I am however, a little disappointed with the quality of this pair. The leather is badly bunched up around the toe box (especially on the left shoe). There are a couple of ‘over glue’ stains around the shoe as well…the faults are a little annoying, but not enough to send the shoes back.
Quite possibly my favourite ever US made New Balance. The shape is phenomenal and the materials are lush to say the least.
