Grenson New Balance 576

by Brendan Dunne

New Balance is upping its leather sourcing once more, this time partnering with fine shoe maker Grenson for a high-end take on the New Balance 576.

The sneakers use top notch calfskin leather and brogue detailing to give the project a brown shoe look. The shoes are very much a collaborative effort on the manufacturing end, having been shipped back and forth from New Balance's Flimby factory and Grenson's Northampton factory during production.

The Grenson x New Balance 576 will launch first on Jan. 9 via Grenson, with a global launch to follow on Jan. 23.
