This Boston-based brand has always prioritized quality, functionality, and comfort over fashion or style. Without minding it, the intense focus of these became New Balance’s signature as is seen from their straightforward and clean designs, such as the time-tested NB 574 and Pro Court silhouettes.
Now the All Coasts 574, a combination of the two classics previously mentioned, brings this heritage up a notch with its well-polished silhouette, which goes along with laid-back and casual clothing.

The All Coasts 574’s most striking appeal is its slim, unique-looking silhouette, which bears two classic designs whose heritage rooted from running, tennis, and basketball. But its finished silhouette flashes the look of a fine low-profile classic skate shoe.
Among New Balance's most storied silhouettes is the NB 574, a trail running sneaker which has first appeared in the late 1980s. It is a hybrid of the best qualities of the NB 575 and 576, dressed in a minimalist aesthetic with a level of comfort so supreme. Throughout the years, NB 574 has gone through a lot of iterations, collaborations, and changes in material, but its main silhouette remains unchanged.
Now New Balance had decidedly shaken up the classic silhouette by mixing it up with a much-older design, the 1970s Pro Court. The All Coasts 574 features the NB574’s upper and the Pro Court’s bottom, fleshing out a more distinctive, refined modern silhouette.
