Taking its inspiration from a series of archived garments, Stone Island has re-interpreted the much appreciated ‘577 style’ New Balance sneaker. Since January 2013 this special edition sneaker is already available at €239 retail price in Italy's Stone Island Flagship stores in Milan, Rome, Florence, Verona, Riccione, through the stoneisland.com website and through a select number of the 30 best Italian Stone Island and New Balance dealers. No foreign distribution is scheduled.

The new SI_577 sneaker is available in two colour variants - white and orange - and has been customized according to Stone Island's unique style. The classic made in England sneakers have been designed for unbeatable comfort.

Born in 1989, the 577 style is considered as one of the best New Balance running shoes produced between end 1980s and beginning of the 1990s and continues to be manufactured by the New Balance factory in Flimby, Cumbria, North West England.

Stone Island has transferred historical materials and constructive details of some of its archive models on this sneaker such as, Raso Gommato, a military-inspired rubberised cotton satin, a highly reflective polyester coated with glass micro-spheres, and rubber details employed for reproducing the "N" logo.
