Review: New Balance 574 sneaker (Holiday Gift Guide)
Retro sneakers continues to be a big trend for Spring 2015. Courtesy of New Balance, I’m reviewing the 574. The 574 is a legendary runner first released in 1988. During the 1980’s, the 574 was the go to shoes for many marathon runners because it is minimalistic, light, durable and comfortable. One of the most famous New Balance runner was Dick Beardsley who ran the Boston Marathon wearing a pair of 574.
Today, the 574 is the quintessential classic New Balance shoe with the large N and the padded collar. The upper is mix of suede and mesh for durability and breathability. While your foot sits on an Encap midsole, a core of EVA encapsulated within a shell of polyurethane for added stability and shock dispersion.
The 574 is available in many colourways from the minimalist grey and black to the bright neon colours such green, purple and pink. With New Balance Custom, starting at $179.99, you can personalized your own 574. You become the designer and can customized each aspect of the shoes from the materials, upper and sole.
With the success of the retro runner, New Balance introduce a spikeless 574 golf shoes this Fall. The golf shoes feature a lightweight foam REVLite midsole and a mesh upper that incorporates no-sew Fantom Fit construction.
The New Balance 574 is a wonderful shoe that has a lot of history and prestige associated with it among professional athletes and shoe enthusiasts. At $100, the 574 is must-have shoe for any guy looking to stay active while looking good. It is the prefect go to shoes for everyday wear.
