The New Balance AC 562 shoes are available in men’s sizing, which ranges from 5 to 14. All are set in D (standard) width. Their low-cut design gives the ankles a full range of mobility, enabling the wearer to adapt well to quick and sudden foot transitions. Meanwhile, a traditional lace-up closure system keeps the feet in with a customizable lockdown fitting.
New Balance is not known for consciously striving for an outward sense of style. Its style goes deeper as its substance is a by-product of its functionality. When it comes to this brand, functionality towers over everything else. That ideal has, in itself, became New Balance’s vintage style.
The All Coasts 562 perfectly embodies such ideal. Its design looks effortless, matching everyday staple clothing. Jeans, joggers, sweatpants, shorts, and any casual wear are go-to matches to this sneaker. The All Coasts 562 comes in a variety of muted and flashy colorways, such as black with grey, green with black, magnet with grey, and sea salt with multicolor.
Its outdoorsy, off-road vibe sets it apart from other New Balance sneakers. It has a dual-toned REVlite midsole, which supports a mutipaneled, perforated suede-mesh upper. What’s more, or less, is that it has three reinforced metal eyelets for that more outdoor-inspired look. Lastly, a pull tab is stitched to the heel for quicker on-and-off wear.
In 1906, New Balance is founded in Boston, Massachusetts. Although known today as an international sneaker brand, New Balance has begun as an arch-support and orthopedic shoes manufacturer, for which the brand first was highly regarded. It was only later in the 1970s, during the running boom, that New Balance has emerged as a foremost shoe brand, appearing in various running magazines.
Soon New Balance brought their heritage into lifestyle wear and even skateboarding, taking leverage from their iconic silhouettes. The All Coasts range sprang out from the brand’s continued growth, inspired by the tennis, hard-court style of the classic Pro Court model. That said, the All Coasts 562 is a retro, outdoor-looking sneaker in the All Coasts range.
