43. ALIFE x New Balance 576 "3M"
Retail Price: N/A (sample only)
Issue: August/Sept 2007
Sadly, this all-3M pair of New Balance 576s, that were made in collaboration with New York's ALIFE, never saw the light of release day. Still, the sneaker's all-silver upper and icy sole are enough to make it something of legend amongst New Balance fans. The 576 is a slightly beefed up, and always more exclusive, version of the 574; featuring an ENCAP for added support on the heel, and with ALIFE's recent return, we can only hope the retailer will dig in the crates and pull these out.
