The New Balance 576 is the latest silhouette that opts to go with a tonal look. Another feature on the shoe that gives the model more of a modern feel is the faux snakeskin detailing placed on the upper of the shoe.

The Made in the UK New Balance 576 comes in a white leather upper. The white body is covered in snakeskin detailing all over the shoe. Different types of snakeskin textures take care different parts of the upper, thus creating a seamless combination of textures. The majority of the midsole comes in white, with the exception of the small grey hit on the rear end of the shoe. Tonal branding appears on the side panels and heel, while UK/NB branding is also placed on the tongue tag of the shoe. If you’re looking for a premium looking version of the NB 576, you should consider picking up a pair of these.

Author’s Take

I like the fact the snakeskin hits appear on the upper, but being that it also comes in the same color as the rest of the upper, it’s a bit difficult to spot on the shoe. A better look would probably be having snakeskin on parts of the shoe instead of the entire shoe, while also having it come in a different colorway.
