New Balance launches a pair of MTL575 Made in UK sneakers in a colorway that references Japan's culture in the 60s. Specifically, the brand draws inspiration from Japan's national flag and the 60s era of television which translates through the color palette.
Most of the sneaker is detailed with monochromatic hues of black and white before details of red as a bright contrast. This is a nod to the black and white television during the time and the Japanese flag. The top of the shoe has a tongue tab with '575" and "TRAIL" branding details with a small mountain-like imagery. The upper is panelled with mesh detailing alongside leather panels as a blend of textures and breathability.
