New Balance 574 sport

574 Sport - silver and white

New Ballance say they're "inspired by an icon and created for a new generation" and this combines the original New Balance 574 with a premium suede and mesh upper and mid-cut boot construction. And for plush comfort and a sleeker look, it features their  Fresh Foam cushioning.

The upper part does look very much like the Nike Air Presto - even down to the loop on the back and tongue - which is no bad thing as the Presto is a stone-cold classic and hugely comfortable, but that design is becoming something of a standard now with trainers from Nike, Adidas and New Ballance here incorporating that look and feel. Thankfully though, it does retain the soul of the classic 574, just now it's been updated - we've pictured the original at the bottom so you can compare.  

It comes in two colourways and is available now.
