The Flash Gets A New Costume In Season 8, Complete With Gold Boots - See The Photos

The Flash Season 8 premieres on November 16 on The CW.


Actor Grant Gustin's new Flash costume for Season 8 of The CW series has finally been revealed. The unveiling was part of the festivities and wall-to-wall announcements during DC FanDome--the comics giant's free, global virtual fan event.

The complete new look was shown off with Gustin in the costume, which features a newly-designed center crest and wings on the headpiece. The actor described these additions 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." Check out the new look below, and decide for yourself.
