The Cumbrian Flag stands out in it’s Grass Green, Sea Blue and Sand Yellow. A bold contrasting triptych of symbolism, colour and allegory, the Flag was established in 1974 after the amalgamation of Cumberland and Westmorland counties, unifying the heraldic badges of both counties to form a tribute to the new region of Cumbria and its picturesque Lake District in the north of England. The smallish town of Flimby on the west coast is home to one of New Balance’s longest serving base of operations. The engine room of all ‘Made In U.K’ branded pairs, the Flimby factory, together with New Balance have devised a special edition, commemorative pack in an ode to the region’s service, identity and history.
The ‘Made In U.K’ M1500 and M770 have been applied premium, contrasting uppers. Utilising mesh, nylon and vibrant pigskin suedes and smooth White leathers sourced from some of the finest tanneries in Somerset, England and beyond in Europe, the pair espouse the strong colours of the Cumbrian Flag and it’s heraldic badges. Green, Blue, White and Yellow drape the duo from the toebox to the heel tab. Custom artwork insoles and special woven labels on the tongue further materialise the beating pulse of Cumbrian identity and history. Complete with familiar comforts such as ENCAP® midsoles, SL-2 lasts and signature N logos, the men’s 1500 and 770 elicit strong throwbacks to vintage new balance running. From New Balance’s Flimby factory to you, the ‘Cumbrian Flag’ pack is only around for a limited time
