Please forgive my New Balance syndrome again! Haha.. I think I should write this as a fan since they are celebrating the 30 years of manufacturing at United Kingdom in 2012.
I won't write too much about their history here to avoid your complain or assumed I'm paid to promote NB. LOL~ Well you still can read the story via the link provided later. Thing that really impressed me is the way they come out these 'collaboration' models. Not picking a celebrity, super star or model, fashion designers or any professional athletes but their own factory workers. 3 of their most senior staffs in Flimby Factory that giving a chance to make their very own version of 576 for the 30th anniversary. I think this is more than a better way for a company to celebrate the day, which is much more convincing to me. Hmm..
I specially love the interview they did. You can read it from the links, and counting from left in below picture; Andy Mandle, Billy Edgar and Roy Bell. Following with their own version of 576, picture via MS.
