New Balance 574: An Icon Re-Imagined

New Balance 574 History

Flicking through the metaphorical pages of New Balance’s archives, one would quickly stumble upon a true classic – the New Balance 574. Originally released in 1988, the 574 quickly became one of New Balance’s most popular and enduring trainer designs, thanks to its timeless style, exceptional comfort, and reliable performance.

The 574’s distinctive silhouette is instantly recognisable, featuring a streamlined shape with a round toe, padded collar and tongue, and a sturdy yet flexible rubber sole. Its upper is typically made from a combination of suede, leather, and nylon, creating a durable yet breathable design that can withstand the rigors of everyday wear.

But what truly sets the New Balance 574 apart is its versatility. While it was initially marketed as a running shoe, it has since become a favourite of fashion-conscious individuals worldwide, thanks to its juxtaposing understated yet sophisticated design. The 574 can be dressed up or down, worn with jeans or shorts, and paired with almost any type of outfit.

The first pair boasts striking tones of orange and olive, reminiscent of an Autumnal colour palette, and easy to style with your classic navy and green hues. The second pair features a greyscale colour scheme that leans towards the neutral colours commonly associated with the brand’s iconic styles. This tonal combination adds an air of sophistication to the shoe, making it an excellent choice for those who prefer a more understated look.
