The year was 1989 and following a number of successful New Balance models came the New Balance 577 sneaker, designed for serious and professional runners. With a similar shape to prior models the 577 was released in just a handful of colorways. The first: navy/grey. This model still holds a strong grip of the running world, more specifically in the Uk where the model still is sold in its shape and colorway.
More than 10 years laters the 577 was reissued on the European market in six colorways and full-grain leather. The Japanese market received yet another four colorways: pine/green/white, navy/black Kevlar/brown/shale, and white. The 21str century reissue of the 577 was produced in limited editions and are today a higly craved item by fans and fashion gurus.
