The New Balance Flimby factory has been busy cranking out domestically produced and classically re-envisioned hits like the U420 and the M577. But it’s the ’90s-revived 576 that gets this year’s conceptual New Balance Flimby pack, as the country prepares to host the summer’s Olympic Games. Aptly titled “Road to London,” the black and gold-accented shoe gets a weatherproof waxed suede and a coated nylon treatment across its upper. The sole is constructed from New Balance’s traditional and comfortable EVA foam with an added contrasting gum rubber tread. If you missed out on scoring tickets to the games, console yourself by landing a pair of the “Road to London” shoes from the Crooked Tongues online store, where they retail for £109 GBP (approximately $175 USD).
