We’ve talked about London hosting the 2012 Olympic Games – it’s a special event, meant to inspire so many related products! It just so happens that I’m on a sneakers spree (I think I feel summer approaching… plus: Isabel Marant’s $700 – something sneakers had me looking for more affordable options) and I found this charming new collection from New Balance.
New Balance Road To London is a collection – you guessed it right – inspired and dedicated to the 2012 Olympic Games. The iconic 420 and 574 with an Union Jack makeover; an important detail – both models are said to be handmade in a Flimby factory (the home of New Balance, situated along England’s North West coast) which celebrates its 30th anniversary this year! I love the new sneakers! I’d take the “Road to London” any day! Would you?
