With the implementation of the new gold footwear, the Flash suit most closely aligns with that of the original comic books.
The CW series had been slow to evolve the suit but every season or so a new detail would be altered to match the pages of the DC comic.
At the event Gustin called the new boots ‘the final element that’s been missing’ throughout the course of the series.
‘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.’

Other things announced at the DC FanDome event including confirmation from Wonder Woman director Patty Jenkins that a third installment of the film was ‘coming.’
Additionally the comic book community was rocked when it was announced that Superman’s long standing motto: ‘Trust, Justice and the American Way,’ would be changed to ‘Truth, Justice and a Better Tomorrow.’
The company did not elaborate on the reasons for ditching the patriotic portion of the adage 83 years after the superhero was debuted, but said they were focusing on ‘evolving.’
