As the emergent, so-called, yuppies of the 1980s began to follow in the footsteps of their leisure class forerunners, and discover the joys of life in the country, a space in the running shoe marketplace opened up for off road equipped models. New Balance responded with the '5' series, which produced some of the most iconic silhouettes ever to sport the famous 'N' logo.
A new, Made in England edition of the 577 demonstrates the stylistic versatility that made the 5 series not just a hit with runners, but a cornerstone of the entire casual sportswear aesthetic. The classic, leather, mesh and pigskin suede upper is rendered in a mix of grey, white, sky blue, purple, and hints of green inspired by the kind of mountain landscapes that make trail running so rewarding.
