Do You Want A Taste Of The New Balance 576 “Tea” Pack?

Over in Britain, they love their tea. We like it over here in the United States, too. But not like they do over in London and other cities across the Atlantic Ocean. So New Balance decided to honor the Brits’ love for tea recently. And how did they do it? Well, by coming up with a very special New Balance 576 “Tea” Pack that honors their love for the tea. All three of the sneakers in the “Tea” Pack were branded with some sort of representation of “tea” to drive the point home. And while these probably aren’t going to get everyone’s attention, we’re sure that there will be more than a few Brits who rock these religiously thanks to their close association with tea.

So what are you getting when you pick up one of the sneakers included in the New Balance 576 “Tea” Pack? It really depends on which of the three sneakers you decide to buy. There is one that’s grey, one that’s navy, and one that’s brown. And they each pay homage to a different kind of tea. For instance, the green pair honors peppermint tea on the tongue of the sneaker. Likewise, the grey pair honors early grey tea on the tongue. And while we’re not sure what the brown pair honors (we can’t tell from the photos), we’re going to go ahead and guess that it also honors a particular type of tea. As you can see in the photos below, all three pairs also feature Great Britain’s flag on the heel of the sneaker.

What do you think about what New Balance has done here? Honoring tea seems a little bit random to us. But at the same time, sneakers like this often find a niche market. So if you’re a big tea drinker—or you just like the look of any of the three sneakers—you should give one a try. No word on when these will be available yet or how much they will cost. But there should be more details on the “Tea” pack soon. In the meantime, can we interest anyone in some tea?
