When in doubt, go tonal. That’s the route New Balance went with the 574 ‘Stealth Collection.’ This time around the mesh in the toebox is replaced by matte leather with a subtle hexagonal pattern that reminds me a bit of a stealth tank.
The 574s are a staple shoe for retro enthusiasts and have garnered respect at a decent price for years. Good to know NB is doing them justice without opting for crazy designs or played out concepts. Just a simple shoe that looks good and is easy to maintain.
The New Balance 574 ‘Stealth Collection’ releases September 1st.
