Combining fashion and technology elements, the 574 creates a visual hybrid for spring 2010. With unique elements, such as black, rich leather and the worn, perforated canvas that is backed with color, exposing the pop of color through the perforations on the toe box, tongue and collar, the pinnacle 574 represents the synergy of beautiful design and functional design. It features full grain Italian leather on the toe, outer body and back heel that improves in look overtime when worn.
Envisioned by New Balance’s Creative Directors, Savania Davies-Keiller and Roberto Crivello, the 574 is re-introduced in full grain and pigskin leathers, buttery suedes and metal mono-mesh.
Additional 574 offerings includes blue buttery suedes and unique performance elements, such as the metal mono-mesh on the toe box, tongue and collar, and matchless metallic lizard-embossed Italian leather, which adorns the N logo and angular heel stripe making the 574 one-of-a-kind.
Along with the style’s premium materials, the 574 also features numerous technologies including: an Encap midsole constructed of polyurethane to provide maximum stability and durability, a full strobel-lasted footbed, lowered EVA and rubber durometers to yield added shoe flexibility and a softer feel, a layer of Abzorb for maximum cushioning and a high density PU foam sockliner which results in more effective moisture management.
