New Balance 574 Leather Style
The New Balance 574 Leather is a low-top sneaker based on the silhouette of the iconic New Balance 574. It is ideal for both men and women who want to add comfort and function to their everyday outfit. It can be worn with active wear for a relaxed look and it can add a bit of sporty look to any casual wardrobe. For the ladies, the 574 Leather can be styled with monotone looks as a pop of color, one of the current trends in the fashion scene today.
One look from afar and one can easily acknowledge the New Balance 574 Leather as it is based on the brand’s one of the most, if not the best, iconic silhouettes. This version received an upgrade through the premium leather material on the upper with perforation details on the toe box for breathability. It also has a distinguishable gum rubber outsole, which adds to its old-school vibe.
New Balance 574 Leather History
Undoubtedly the most popular sneaker model of the US shoe brand New Balance, the New Balance 574 has been out on the market since 1988 and was reissued in 2003. It is one of the most recognizable models, with a combination of suede and mesh materials on the upper, a solid rubber outsole, and the New Balance’s ENCAP cushioning system in the midsole.
The New Balance 574 shoes gained popularity mainly due to their comfort, durability, and many color options, which equate to variation in terms of styling. They were originally released as advanced running shoes but crossed over to streetwear because of their style, comfort, and durability.
In July 2015, the classic New Balance 574 received its well-deserved luxury upgrade through a durable and premium all-leather upper and gum rubber outsole. Known as the New Balance 574 Leather, it also features a padded ankle collar for all-around comfort, the ENCAP midsole technology, EVA foam, and the iconic New Balance branding along the sides and on the heel.
