Editor’s Notes: Thirteen years after their first collaboration, UK’s Hanon and New Balance have aligned once again to reinterpret the New Balance 520, an archival runner originally launched in the 1970’s.
Hanon pays homage to the North East of Scotland and its illustrious history in North Sea fishing. Aberdeen Harbour is the oldest existing business in the UK with a history that spans almost 900 years, and further north in Peterhead, there is the largest white fish and pelagic (mackerel and herring) port in the UK.
Each pair of shoes bought from Hanon will come with a set of four postcards from British photographer Ewen Spencer featuring images from the shoot.
