New Balance names all their shoes after a number, and that can make it very hard for some people discern one shoe from another. Everyone should know the 574 though, as it’s the most popular New Balance shoe and seen on a daily basis. It’s the shoe that has a vintage-inspire running style with a big “N” on the side. Ever since the 1990s, these shoes have constantly been on the shoe shelves in malls and stores. Recently, New Balance took the 574 and gave it some more modern traits to push it along in 2018.
In 2017, New Balance added a slight sock sneaker look to the 574 through the 574 sport. The new true-blue 574 gets updates that are more subtle. The toe curves upward less, giving the shoe a better look and more angular silhouette. The shoe also includes a single-piece lining for added comfort a slimmer style that creates a fresher look.
The first drop of the newly tooled 574 comes in a variety of colors that almost any guy can rock: navy blue, olive green and burgundy. Shop the new style at New Balance for $80.
