New Balance had a winner on its hands with the initial release of the 576, and now for the sneaker’s 30th anniversary we’ll see a special edition collab alongside British designer Paul Smith.
In addition to the co-branded 576, NB is also throwing a MiUK One boot in the mix as well, with both silhouettes incorporating Smith’s signature stripe pattern. The “Made in the UK” soccer cleat — football if you’re reading this overseas — features a red and white colorway that incorporates the Smith stripes on the tongue, heel counter and insole. With the 576, the design is used in a more subtle way, taking over the heel tab, insole and lining around the silhouette’s medial and lateral “N” logos.
