These boots were made for running…and looking Flash. For season eight of The Flash, Barry Allen aka The Flash (series star Grant Gustin) will be sporting some fancy new footwear—a pair of gold boots!
Although the Speedster’s supersuit has been evolving over the years, the iconic goldboots from DC comic books had not materialized until now. When asked about the upgrade at DC FanDome, Gustin described them as “the final element that’s been missing. I’ve loved all the versions of The Flash suit we’ve had on the show, but the suit we have now is the closest to the many iterations you see in the comic books—with the exception of those gold boots! I’ve always felt that those boots would be the final touch.”
DC FanDome viewers also saw the official first look at The Flash’s new suit, which features a newly designed center crest and wings. And the complete new look was revealed today in a photo of Gustin.
From Berlanti Productions in association with Warner Bros. Television, The Flash returns for season eight with the five-part “Armageddon” mega-event beginning Tuesday, November 16, at 8/7c on The CW. Based on the DC characters, the series is executive produced by Greg Berlanti, Eric Wallace, Sarah Schechter, Jonathan Butler and Gabriel Garza.
