New Balance 574 (Atmosphere Pack)
It seems New Balance have kept their trippiest stuff for the end of year, with this 574 'Atmosphere Pack' boggling our brains and eyes. It's a no seams affair here, with the upper undergoing space age smooth molded construction and slapped on an asteroid-encrusted midsole. The show stealer, however, is the colour shifting effect on the toebox, tongue, ankle collar and toebox panels – it's all shimmer shimmer in just about any light, kinda like a glittery rave cape you see on enthusiastic girls at music festivals. The madness don't stop there though, flick the switch and the logo and midsole put on a glowstick light show, they're fully heaps glow-in-the-dark. The pack is available now from Renarts.
