One of the coolest things about New Balance is that they have two manufacturing plants, one here and one abroad. The latter just whipped up a New Balance 576 release that pays special tribute to the youth movements of both Mods and Punks and it is truly something special.

For this drop the silhouette is decked out in two very expressive colorways with perfect execution. The punks are given a black leather upper with plaid trim and red and green accents while the mods are treated to olive nubuck and a beige fur lining. However if a mere glance isn't enough to help you figure out which is which then look no further than the tongue's that bear the style each colorway portrays.

This is a really awesome pack which gives a nod to a deep cultural movement and does a great job in summing it up. If you'd like to identify yourself as mod or punk you can do so by rolling over to mita and filling your shopping cart with the pair that speaks to you.
