Just yesterday we showed you the new 574 3M Pack from New Balance, here comes a closer look at the new Pub Pack, consisting of 3 576’s.

“Based on some popular pub names – The Kings Head (with the possessive apostrophe seemingly optional back in the day), The Red Lion and The Royal Oak, with the pick of shade somehow tied in to the titles, this feels like a sequel of sorts to the equally plush Classic Car set a few years back. Union Jacks on the heel reinforces that UK identity too – a sequel set with Scampi Fries, bathroom-based flavoured condom machines and the half-naked lady on the peanut display card referenced would be a perfect finale, but these are a very good start indeed. Extra points for referencing our beloved booze culture and keeping those toeboxes splash proof too. Throw in a branded bar towel and beermat and you’ve got another good reason to like our division of New Balance’s lifestyle releases a lot.”

The New Balance 576 Pub Pack will be released at premium retailers in July 2010.

Take a further look at all three sneakers from the pack after the jump.
