New Balance’s 574 is one of those shoes that unites every sentient, sneaker wearing human, from people whose collections allow them to go months on end without repeating a pair, to people who only own one pair of sneakers at a time. Its style and comfort has transcended all labels. The 574’s versatility is largely, in part, thanks to the shoe’s functional origins, which aimed to combine road and trail running properties, for true, go-anywhere performance.
This brand new take on the 574 embraces the experimental tinkering spirit of the original design process. New Balance kicks off 2021 with the introduction of the 57/40.
An evolution of the 574 shape sees a subtle streamlining of the silhouette combine with bold cosmetic alterations and exaggerated features, for a modern overhaul that retains the classic model’s DNA. A mesh upper features overlaid leather, with a wavy eyerow , mudguard, and midsole design for a contemporary look, while exaggerated off-road soles, ‘N’ branding, and ENCAP cushioning complete the design.
I won't take Cupid's arrow to make you fall in love at first sight with the Valentine's Day edition of the 57/40. The vivid, tonal pink colorway should be more than enough.
