While it is overshadowed by baseball here in the states, cricket is a pretty big deal in England. With this nugget of knowledge, it should come as no surprise that the game has garnered an ultra exclusive New Balance drop in its honor.

The New Balance 577 Test Match Collection boasts three colorways of the runner, each manufactured at the company's Flimby factory in England. A green suede pair represents the field while the blue colorway is made for the stadium seats. The tanned leather pair is representative of the ball itself, but that same grade of leather pops up on each pair in the form of the "N" logo on the side.

If you're wondering when you'll be able to get your hands on a pair, each one is available on the New Balance site right now. It'll be interesting to see if they pop up here in the U.S.
