On the scale of New Balance’s desirability, there are no pairs that are more sought after than those made by hand. The factories that New Balance maintains in Maine and Flimby are places of craftsmanship and quality, and only the sneakers pass through these doors get the stitching that herald their provenance.
The factory in Flimby is most famous for crafting the 577, and just recently size? took the trip to the birthplace of so many pairs to see how they get along. In their video “synopsize visits: New Balance's Factory in Flimby” they got a full look at the construction process for these shoes.
Take a look at how the pieces come together to form one of the sneaker world’s most beloved models.
