The iconic New Balance 574 sneaker has been in business for over three decades, unaffected by trends and seemingly only have gotten better with age. Though most enthusiasts of the classic look and iconic silhouette felt it couldn't be improved, the Boston-based shoe company has elevated the style in subtle ways for 2018 and the results speak for themselves.
The slight updates include a reduced toe height for a sleeker look, a simplified seam construction and a one-piece lining for improved on-foot comfort and a new last shape for a better all-around fit including improved heel shape. It keeps everything you love about the sneaker, just modernizes it slightly. It works and works well.
The new 574s are available now through NewBalance.com and select stockists and priced at $79.
