New Balance’s UK manufacturing arm recently brought back the trail-oriented 575 model, but with a twist. The same quality build and materials remain on the upper, but there’s a new sole in town: Vibram Megagrip.
It’s a new compound that New Balance have used to design a lightly-cleated tread pattern that maximises grip across mixed surfaces. Paired with NB’s very illustrious experience in making good shoes, these should be a winning combination.
The competition, of course, being the great outdoors where the 575 is intended to be used. Available now directly from New Balance.
