Centenary (100 Years) Edition – 577, 670, 1500

Now available at Overkill Shop!

“Hard to believe that New Balance are celebrating their 100th anniversary since 1906. Due to this birthday New Balance is dedicating three limited editions to their three oldest employees. Audrey Stewart, Ian Byers and Victor Dixon are working in the New Balance UK factories in Flimby for more than 70 years now. That is why they are called the “Flimby Heroes” and are depicted on the inside shoe.

The three best shapes were chosen: 1500, 670 and 577. Each of them in the original colours and in their unique retro style. This is a true hommage to those who are working hard for the success of the quality brand.”

Each is limited to 1906 pairs worldwide.

Ian Byers offers his services as a “toe and side laster” since 1982. Now one of the finest incarnations from the 1500 is brought by him to you.
