New Balance 574 Nubuck Style
The low-top New Balance 574 Nubuck was released in several colorways. All of these options have Champagne Metallic color accents for an edgy look: Black, Seed, Au Lait, and Arctic Sky. They have a sporty flair due to the shoe’s running-inspired design, making them ideal for pairing with athleisure outfits. Any casual clothing ensemble would also go well with the sneaker, as it has a street style appeal that’s versatile enough for daily activities.
New Balance 574 Nubuck History
New Balance began by selling arch supports and other footwear accessories in the Boston vicinity, helping people achieve a better fit with their shoes. The company was founded in 1906 by William J. Riley. Years later, Riley employed Arthur Hall as his salesman, who later became his business partner. By the 1930s, the business shifted to creating shoes specially made for athletes.
This landmark change brought much success for the company, earning them a loyal following of athletes who specifically requested for the brand’s kicks. In 1956, Hall's daughter and her husband, Eleanor and Paul Kidd, bought the company. Four years later, the brand made history by introducing the first running shoe to come in different widths, called the "Trackster.” Furthermore, the sneaker sported a rippled sole, the first of its kind.
Soon, New Balance became a force to be reckoned with in the footwear industry. Many models have come and gone from the label's catalog, and sometimes these shoes come together to form a new one. This is the case with the 574 sneaker, which was a hybrid born out of the 575 and 576 models. Both of these shoes were released in the 1980s and were geared towards the growing “yuppie” culture of the young and budget-savvy.
The success of the 574 model has led to it becoming a classic, making it one of the brand's most iconic silhouettes. Since its release in 1988, many editions of the shoe have been released, such as the women's only shoe New Balance 574 Nubuck.
This version celebrates the long-lasting style and premium construction of the original 574. It features ENCAP cushioning technology to enhance the shoe’s comfort and cushioning, making it ideal for individuals who are always active in many aspects of life.
