Grant Gustin’s The Flash gets fancy new shoes for CW season eight as fans first experience the costume at DC FanDome event
Grant Gustin’s The Flash costume gets a makeover for season eight.
The 31-year-old star of the CW smash series and DC Comics revealed a preview of his new costume on Saturday at the DC FanDome event.
Throughout the series, Barry Allen’s Flash costume featured a relatively low-key pair of red boots, but in the new season, he’ll be wearing iconic gold boots.

Something was missing: Gustin called the new boots the “last thing missing” and while the Flash suit has evolved over the seasons, it brings a new element of comedic realism; new boots pictured above
With the implementation of the new gold shoes, the Flash jumpsuit most closely aligns with that of the original comics.
The CW series had been slow to evolve the costume, but every season or so a new detail would be tweaked to match the pages of the DC comics.
At the event, Gustin called the new boots the “last missing item” throughout the series.
“I loved every version of the Flash suit we’ve had on the show, but the suit we have now is the closest of the many iterations you see in the comics – except for those golden boots. ! I always thought these boots would be the finishing touch.

Other things were announced at the DC FanDome event, including confirmation from Wonder Woman director Patty Jenkins that a third installment of the film was “coming soon.”
Additionally, the comic book community was rocked when it was announced that Superman’s long-held motto: “Trust, Justice, and the American Way” would be changed to “Truth, Justice, and a Better Tomorrow.”
The company did not explain the reasons for dropping the patriotic part of the adage 83 years after the superhero’s debut, but said it was focusing on “evolution.”
The CW’s The Flash is set to launch its new season on November 16.
