Atmos 576 Fujin

New Balance just celebrated their 100th year as a company however their next anniversary is just around the corner. The 576 is turning 20 in 2008 and Atmos arrives early to the party with their Fujin model, named after the Shinto god of wind.

Fujin “is portrayed as a terrifying dark demon wearing a leopard skin” (1) hence the black color and leopard pattern on the heel. The tongue and insole depict Fujin himself, complete with billowing wind bag.

A nice mix of the traditional and contemporary, this one is due for a Japanese release in September.
