New Balance M 577 “Napes Pack”: take the challenge!

The human being can get hooked on hundreds of different things. This explains why climbing, one of the most dangerous sports, has thousands of followers, who are actually adrenaline junkies. Straight from the name of the pack, New Balance pays a tribute with the “Napes Pack” to the fearless climbers of the Napes Needle, a well-known rock which, back in the XIXth century, became a reference point for rock-climbing in the United Kingdom.

The usual esthetic of New Balance blends with the essence of old-school climbing gear, and this is why the colourway reminds us of trekking boots of the latest decades.

Also, the midsole features ENCAP technology, which takes care of impact absorption in each step.

It just maybe that the true meaning lies in the sacrifice, the effort and the adrenaline before reaching the summing. So… get your New Balance M 577 before you misstep!
