BRAND OF THE MONTH – New Balance
The iconic sneaker from a manufacturer that's been caring about your feet 40 years before Nike and Adidas were around. Meet the New Balance 574.
The shoes, always numbered never named, owe this tradition to a man named Arthur Heckler, who wanted to emphasize the New Balance brand and philosophy, rather than a particular shoe. In 1978, the New Balance 320 and 620 were introduced, followed by the instantly popular 990 in the early 80's. Although these models are still around today, the brand's most sought-after model is the 574, introduced in 1988 and originally made from leftover 576 material.
More reasons to prefer the 574 over its predecessors are the fact that New Balance themselves consider it their signature shoe, and with seven colour choices available now on Walktall, what's not to love?A real classic design which has endured for nearly three decades and will continue to provide comfort and support to its wearers for many years to come.
