New Balance is coming off their recent patriotic kick with the Lake District Pack, a collection of three 576s designed to represent jolly old England. The New Balance Lake District pack has been specifically designed to represent the area around the English city of Flimby, home to lakes (one would assume) as well as a New Balance factory.

Each shoe in the New Balance Lake District pack comes complete with a Union Jack on the heel and a map of the surrounding topography on the tongue. Proving that beauty really is about what's inside, each shoe has the aforementioned tongue map sketched into its inner hell. Overall, the shoe isn't too loud but is still proud. People of Flimby, this shoe is for you.
