New Balance’s growth these past few years is undeniably impressive — their collaborative range spanning JJJJound to COMME des GARCONS. And within that spectrum, there lies heavy diversity, some brands offering up vibrant colors and others neutrals; but with each their own respective impact on the label, it seems all is equally productive as their mainline collections have expanded to bring back the 992 and spotlight even the models outside the reach of the 9XX series, the most notable of which being the sleek 577. Moving on from its Chinese New Year celebration, the model is infusing vibrant color with hues of neon green, olive, light blue, and saturated red, using all in tandem across various points of the upper. Though the base lies flat in dark suede and mesh, the overlays — “N” logos, toe caps, heel wraps, and the like — swap in and out between the core components of the palette. Warm tones seat the forefoot, cool along the heel, and the earthy greens balance at the ankle just adjacent to ENCAP molds of highlighter shade, one that laces prefer to complement.
