New Balance has spent the last 110 years filling its factory floors with the offcuts of some of the coolest trainers in the world.
But rather than throwing surplus materials away, the brand has been stockpiling them and now, in celebration of its anniversary, has rolled the leftovers of its past releases into a series of Frankenstein sneakers.
Thrown together from odds and sods, the patchwork mash-ups that make up the Surplus Pack take on the shape of five classics models – the 1500, 670, 575, 576 and 577 – as well as the all new 991.5.
Each pair, all made in England at the New Balance factory in Flimby, Cumbria, has been produced in a limited edition run of just 1,906 pairs, the year the brand started selling arched foot supports, complete individually numbered hang-tags.
Hand-me-downs never looked so good.
The first half of the New Balance MiUK Surplus Pack will be available online from 3 September, with the second half dropping from 24 September, prices tbc.
