After leaving a legacy as a hardcore runner’s running shoes, the New Balance M577 has taken the steps towards the lifestyle market. The new models are from the forthcoming Autumn/Winter 2011 collection and these are handmade in the Cumbrian factory in England. An authentic choice of materials, leather and mesh, pays homage to the original sneakers, yet the refreshed colorway give these a contemporary feel. The patented ENCAP cushioning system absorbs shock and adds comfort in every stride. Both versions are currently available at oki-ni online store and select outlets around the globe.
