New Glory - Cobalt
Made in England.
Design Origin: The New Glory, was one of Normans premium offerings. First released in the early 1980's, it was a reworked and improved design of its original production. The New Glory was a lightweight road training and racing shoe that used a breathable mesh for ventilation. It was also designed to have a great stability support in both the heel and toe.
Some recent customer reviews of the Norman Walsh Footwear collection:
Cleaning fabrics such as nylon/polyester and PVC can easily be achieved using a cloth and soapy water to remove dirt. For fabrics such as cotton or wool, we recommend using a soft bristle brush to remove any dirt.
It is important to brush suede frequently using a soft brass brush or, hard bristle brush to remove any contaminants. Hard stains can be removed with a suede rubber or cleaner. To protect suede from the elements, we recommend using a waterproofing spray.
Midsoles can be cleaned with a midsole cleaner or warm soapy water. Darker midsoles may also be 'cleaned' with fine grit non-marking sandpaper. Suede may transfer onto other clothing. Never machine wash or tumble dry shoes. Never dry in direct sunlight.

Born on July 20th 1931 in Daubhill Bolton, Norman Walsh was the youngest of a family of three brothers and step brother. Leaving school in 1945 at the then custom age of 14, Norman followed his cobbler father William's footsteps into the industry, starting an apprenticeship at Bolton-based J.W. Foster & Sons.
His progress was early recognised and so outstanding that his name and work became greatly recognised by many professional athletes around the world and was highly sought after. In 1961 Norman founded a brand under his own name, Norman Walsh Footwear.
