The Weekly Find: New Balance Custom 574
New Balance Custom 574
The first pair of 574s was created in 1988, and today you can create your own version of this classic with a few clicks and at a very reasonable price. New Balance labels shoes as “Made in USA” when 70% or more of the item’s value is originated domestically. This is a very important disclosure that most brands don’t specify and we applaud all efforts to increase transparency and give the consumer better information.
Aside from the brand’s well-known quality and affordability, the NB look remains relevant for the more fashion-forward consumers. Because running shoes are not really about running, but about being unique, identifying with a lifestyle and send a message about yourself, something like: “you know I’m cool because I can pull off the New Balance/short skirt combo”.
Here are Fashionhedge’s designed pair: classic and chic.
You can select the color and materials for the different parts of the shoe, giving you the ability to control every single aspect of visual design.
