New Balance 574 Size Guide – How do they fit?

A Timeless Silhouette


New-Balance-574-1


Dubbed ‘the most New Balance shoe ever’, the 574 is the brands most unlikely icon. The trusty silhouettes forgoes advanced technologies and luxury materials, and instead opts for sheer functionality as its selling point. A trainer you can rely on, the 574 is ideal for everyday wear and will slot right into your casual-wear rotation.


New-Balance-574-2


Don’t let the apparent lack of New Balance technology fool you though, these kicks are incredibly comfortable; A spongy insole offers a soft base while ENCAP technology combines lightweight EVA foam with a durable polyurethane rim to deliver unparalleled support and stability. The trainers durable outsole can take a beating far beyond everyday wear and its rugged design offers the wearer traction and grip on the most slippy of surfaces. To the upper, a mesh base increases breathability and airflow while the aesthetics are elevated with leather and premium suede overlays. New Balance branding appears in the form of embroidery to the heel and tongue, the iconic ‘N’ logo and the Boston based brands famed phrase, ‘The Intelligent choice’.

A truly timeless and iconic silhouette, the 574 is a classic and is sure to offer a reliable trainer for years to come.

How do the New Balance 574 fit?

How do you style the New Balance 574’s?

The New Balance 574 flaunts a classic look with a slightly retro style, and you can pair them with pretty much anything. Whether you opt for a smart pair of chinos, a casual pair of jean, sweatpants or shorts, the 574 is always a safe styling option.

Are the New Balance 574’s comfortable?

The use of New Balance’s ENCAP technology and the EVA foam outsole means that every step is cushioned, the trainer can offers day long comfort no matter the task, and an offering of stability and support makes it the ideal shoe for those who plan to be on their feet all day.

How do I care for my New Balance 574’s?

The New Balance 574’s are made using a variety of overlaying materials, and while they are rugged and durable, it doesn’t mean that they are dirt-proof. To prolong their lifespan we recommend giving them a spray with Crep Protect before wear, and cleaning them down with Jason Mark’s Cleaning solution if they get awfully dirty.

New Balance 9060 Size Guide – How do they fit?

Seeing its Second Release in a Brown Colourway on 13.08.22


New Balance 9060 Sea Salt Surf 01


New Balance have quickly solidified themselves as the go-to trainer brand this year; With numerous hyped collabs and colourways selling out almost immediately, the Boston based brand have proven that they’re a force to be reckoned with in the footwear industry. Dropping a number of hyped models that fly of the shelves, New Balance have seen a massive haul of success in the form of 550’s, 2002R’s and 990’s. But, for Summer 2022, the brand have turned their attention toward the long awaited 9060 silhouette, which will see its first general release in a ‘sea salt’ colourway.


New Balance 9060 Sea Salt Surf 04


The 9060 silhouette successfully released in collaboration with Joe FreshGoods earlier this year and its general release has been one we’ve been keeping our eye out for. Taking inspiration from both the brand’s 99x series and 860v2 trainers, the model  offers a mashup that can only be described as a ‘modern dad trainer’. On the upper of the shoe, breathable mesh panels are encapsulated by suede and leather overlays. The external side of the shoe sees 3M reflective ‘N’ New Balance branding whereas the internal side sees the reflective branding be replaced with dotted embroidery in the shape of an ‘N’. In typical New Balance fashion, comfort is key and that’s exactly why the brand opts for an ABZORB midsole to reduce impact and create an easy wearing, everyday shoe. The chunky outsole also provides further comfort whilst adding to the unique aesthetic.


New Balance 9060 Sea Salt Surf 02


How do the New Balance 9060 fit?

Generally, the New Balance 9060’s shape means that it fits slightly snug. For added comfort or for those of you with wider feet we recommend taking half a size up.

How do you style the New Balance 9060’s?

The New Balance 9060 flaunts modern dad trainer aesthetic, they’re ideal to pair with any jeans, or joggers and look great with some casual suit pants for a more dressed up look.

Are the New Balance 9060’s comfortable?

The use of New Balance’s ABZORB technology and the large, chunky outsole means that almost every impact is softened, the shoes are ideal for everyday wear and offer a reliably comfortable feel.

How do i care for my New Balance 9060’s?

The New Balance 9060’s are made using a variety of overlaying materials, this typically means that they are harder to clean. Not to worry though as our offering of Jason Mark means that your shoes will be looking spick and span in no time. Simply grab some Jason Mark Cleaning solution and a shoe care brush and give them a good scrub over, problem solved!


The New Balance 9060 will Launch in a Brown colourway online at Aphrodite Clothing on 13.08.22

NB 40th Anniversary 01

New Balance set to drop a commemorative 991 to celebrate 40 years of ‘Made in UK’

Celebrating 40 years of manufacturing the ‘Made in UK’ range.

NB 40th Anniversary 01

Despite New Balance’s rapid growth in recent years, and subsequently a rapid increase in demand, the Boston based brand continue to produce their ‘Made in UK’ collection in their Flimby factory; Situated on the Cumbrian coastline, the factory relies on the skill of experienced local workers to produce almost 28,000 pairs of sneakers weekly. As testament to the quality of craftsmanship, and to celebrate the 40th anniversary of ‘Made in UK’,  New Balance are gearing up to release a commemorative 991 colourway.

The New Balance 991 is arguably one of the brand’s most iconic models. Inspired by the Made in US 990 and the Made in UK 1500,  the silhouette offers pure style and an unparalleled ‘dad sneaker’ aesthetic. Since its debut back in 2001, almost every 991 colourway has been produced in Flimby, maintaining the same expected standards and quality of the factory.

And the 40th anniversary 991 is no exception.

NB 40th Anniversary 03

Dressed in a stunning, yet simple, grey colourway, this sneaker looks set to join a long  line of sought after New Balance kicks. Pigskin suede makes up the toe-cap, side panelling and heel of the shoe while a mesh toe-box offers breathability to the sneaker. Leather beige detailing provides a pleasing contrast to the grey colour scheme, sprucing up the tongue, heel and toe-box of the kicks. Reflective patches can be found at the heel, where ‘991’ is neatly embroidered into the shoe, as well as making up the iconic ‘N’ New balance branding to the side of the shoe.

To the sole of the sneaks, ENCAP midsole cushioning combines lightweight foam with a durable polyurethane rim to deliver all-day support. C-Cap technology also provides support to the forefoot of the shoe while ABZORB crash pads absorb impact through a combination of cushioning and compression resistance. The two-tone paintjob adds to the overall style of the shoe while transparent windows show off the ABZORB pads found in the heritage kicks.

NB 40th Anniversary 08

Reminders of the 40th anniversary are placed on the in-sole and the inside of the shoes tongue, as well as the aptly decorated commemorative box the kicks arrive in. Expected to launch on the 5th May, you’ll be able to get your hands on a pair at Aphrodite Clothing.
