The New Balance 577 will get more daring with its materials via this carbon fiber edition that's hitting for summer.
Actually, carbon fiber on this model isn't exactly a new thing. There's the treasured New Balance 577 NBW from 2005 that did the same — although that pair had slightly more carbon fiber patterning to it. That pair also had more leather, while this one mostly sticks to suede.
