Meanwhile, the Made in UK 576 is getting the anniversary treatment in commemoration of its 35th year. The hugely influential silhouette, first launched way back in 1988, later inspired future designs including the 574. The occasion of the shoe’s 35th anniversary is being marked with the March 2 release of two colorways, as teased below.
