The http://newbalance.com” target=”_blank”>New Balance 576 was designed specifically with the US running market in mind. However, when it debuted in 1988, the 576 received mediocre interest from the running community. Instead, the supple support of its ENCAP and C-CAP structures made it a surprise hit among athletic walkers. From there on, urbanites in Tokyo fashioned it on the streets of Harajuku and transform the 576 from a simple utilitarian gear into a fashion statement. TIn celebration of the 576’s 20th anniversary, New Balance is creating a limited run of the classic in special compositions. Made of mostly premium brown suede, the 20th anniversary edition features a lizard-skin pattern print in reflective material on the fore foot and the ubiquitous “N” logo. Available currently at http://wesoldout.com” target=”_blank”>Sold Out (http://wesoldout.com” target=”_blank”>We Sold Out) and selected boutiques worldwide.
