Classics should be left untouched. The reason they’re even considered ‘classic’ in the first place is because they haven’t been changed or updated. But, sometimes, when done right – you can get away with modernizing something tried and true. Take New Balance’s 574 Sport for example.
This contemporary take on the mid-1980s trail runner features a mesh and suede upper that has a sporty and laid-back look. In addition to looking sharp, the tongueless mid-cut bootie is breathable and super comfortable – making it ideal for summer wear in the city. But the comfort doesn’t stop at the 574 Sport’s upper. The mid on the shoe features the brand’s proprietary Fresh Foam technology. The single piece of foam placed between the footbed and outsole allows for an all-around smoother and more plush ride. Right now you can pick these kicks up in either Silver with White, or Grey with Black.
