The Shoe Surgeon continues to give popular shoes eye-catching, unique makeovers. For his latest creation, the acclaimed sneaker-sorcerer follows up this month’s W-21 collaboration by setting his sights — and tools — on the New Balance 574 Sport. Utilizing rich python and Lycra-based leather, The Shoe Surgeon completely reworks and rejuvenates the 574 Sport, turning it something that could stand out among a sea of similar shoes.

“Exotic materials, in my opinion, indicate instant quality,” The Shoe Surgeon tells Sneaker Freaker, explaining his aesthetic choices. “I’ve made many different shoes with all sorts of different leathers — really high-grade stuff — but it can be hard for someone to justify the price of a custom shoe in their mind if there’s not something exotic about the materials.”

Originally revealed this past summer, the New Balance 574 Sport currently comes in “Wheat,” “Mint” and “Burgundy” and fall-ready iterations.

You can take an in-depth look at The Shoe Surgeon’s latest custom creation above, and check out the entire Sneaker Freaker piece.
