New Balance's Limited Edition Trainers Made From Scraps

New Balance took an interesting approach making this sneaker.

When it comes to sneakers, it’s pretty much a case of the more unique the better.

Which is why this pair caught our interest, hot off the New Balance factory floor…literally.

The design, made as part of the New Balance Made In US 998 range, was created in a bid to transform the surplus material scattered across the factory floor.

It’s an issue that’s been increasingly highlighted across the fashion industry in recent years, with more brands feeling the need to cut down on waste given buyers’ increased awareness of disposable fashion.

Each design is a genuine 1-of-1 given the variations in scraps available, with only 100 pairs available. (and rumor has it these have already sold out online)
