The American sportswear brand that is New Balance has just announced that they are launching two brand new styles as part of their ‘Made in UK’ venture. To be precise these styles are the 991 and 1500.
As the 991 and 1500 have been constructed with both comfort and style in mind, they might not be perfect for sneakerheads or hardcore hikers, however, there’s no denying there will be fans somewhere in the middle.
Specifically, the MADE UK 991 men’s sneaker features a classic ABZORB midsole, providing a comfortable cushion. This iteration of our sneaker sports a ripstop, hairy suede, pigskin and synthetic upper in ’80s-inspired outdoor tones for premium style.
Inspired by ’80s hiking aesthetics, this iteration of our MADE UK 1500 features a premium upper of ripstop, hairy suede, pigskin and synthetic materials with bright colour pops to elevate your look. These casual shoes also include classic ENCAP midsole cushioning for comfort and support with every step.
Each MADE UK sneaker is crafted in New Balance’s factory in Flimby, Cumbria, UK. Take a look at both styles below. If you like what you see then head over to newbalance.com to shop them both.
