The New Balance x Grenson Phase 2 drop puts a touch of British class on the 576 running silhouette.
Rewind back to 2016, well one year to be exact, and we were treated to the first New Balance x Grenson installment. It would be fair to say the collaboration saw the first of its kind mixing Grenson’s signature brogue shoe we usually see in the form of the ‘Stanley’ or ‘Archie’ with the New Balance 576. The end result was a brogue trainer if there ever was such a thing, and a combination of fine craftsmanship and materials.
The next installment sees the New Balance x Grenson Phase 2 Pack, again focusing heavily on the 576 which was originally released in 1988. Following on from the success of the 574 and the 575, the 576 is still highly regarded by NB’ collectors as one of their all time greats following a revival in the late 90s as well as recent years.
For January 2018, New Balance & Grenson put their Made in UK stamps’ on the 576 with 2 new iterations of the classic 80s runner. Features include premium Italian calf leather uppers in the signature Grenson tan colours sitting on top of the famous ENCAP midsole unit.
The New Balance x Grenson Phase 2 Pack is set to launch from endclothing.com from Saturday 20th January 2018.
