The New Balance 574 sneaker is a legendary silhouette and possibly the most recognizable sneaker on the planet.  It has been the basis of many limited edition variations over the years and now the classic kicks are being updated for modern sensibilities, for a wide release.

The New Balance 574 Sport ($120) features a premium lightweight suede and mesh mid-cut bootie constructed upper that fits well with everyday wear.  It has an innovative midsole created from a single piece of New Balance’s ‘Fresh Foam’ that provides a very plush cushioning.  It also features an Abzorb crash pad as well as slip-on entry.

The street shoe is being offered in two colorways – either black or white nubuck.  Both have a front to back silver/white/red color band along the sides of the tapering midsole.   [via]
