New Balance 57/40 Trainers – Modern Adaptions
A relative newcomer to their well-versed numerical lineup, the New Balance 57/40 builds upon one of the brand’s most cherished silhouettes. Using the 574 as their base material and pairing it with a substantial amount of performance running charm, the sneakers aim to build upon their counterparts favourable reputation with a forward-thinking standalone entry of their own.
Cherry-picking a subtle selection of features from their predecessor, the New Balance 57/40 takes things in a new, and largely unexplored, modern direction making use of exaggerated proportions, multi-layered fabrication and cascading design lines. Constructed from both mesh and suede across its uppers for a lightweight and breathable feel, classic branding elements can be seen to both the sides and tongue.
Lifting further inspiration from key fashion movements during the ’80s and ’90s, this rendition of the trainers come decked out in a multitude of vibrant tones. Stringing together jaded greens and deep navy hues, a ‘Light Cliff Grey’ brings a paired down base whilst ‘Velocity Red’ accents continue the sprightly vistas. Below a stacked and cushioning midsole ensures everyday wear is both comfortable and responsive.
