For the first time in the history of the sports brand, New Balance dedicates a sneaker to a country. The 576 gets outfitted in the national colors of France. A soft mix of premium leathers and suede make up the upper, resulting in an overall good looking sneaker. The French flag is also carried on the heel, which was in our opinion un-necessary, as the sneaker has a clear message without it as well.
The New Balance 576 “France” will drop in limited numbers on May 1st at the New Balance pop-up store at L’Imprimerie in Paris.
