New Balance have produced a trainer inspired by Peter Saville’s designs for Joy Division. The white trainer features Saville’s now famous image he created for Joy Division’s ‘Unknown Pleasures’ album on the sole and ‘Fact 10’ the catalogue number for the record. As usual Gawker added their amusing tuppence worth: "Yeah, that’s how we always pictured Ian Curtis. Jogging like a prat.
Maybe with some ankle weights, and a track suit! Right up until the
moment he hanged himself." New Balance themselves can’t reveal anything other than to confirm that it’s something they’re working on. See after the jump for another picture.
