The New Balance 575 seems to have fallen into obscurity somewhat, despite being a mainstay in overseas fashion. The chunky midsole unit tends to be overlooked for more slender sleek silhouettes. With that said, New Balance makes a serious push for the model's respect with their latest release - the 575 "Elite" - Black/Blue. This "Elite" version of the 575 adds high quality materials including pigskin suede to the upper, while the Rollbar-equipped midsole unit offers incredible support and stability. The colorblocking is phenomenal, as the the body is a pitch black combination of closed mesh and pigskin, while the toe is a vibrant blue. The New Balance 575 "Elite" - Black/Blue is available now at both KITH locations and online at KithNYC.com.
