For the early months of 2021, the New Balance Tokyo Design Studio honed in on pushing out collaborative footwear pieces including a RC_2 iteration with AURALEE and a RC_4 Mid variation with Snow Peak. And Japan-based entity is set to roll out more sneakers this Spring under its general release lineup, one of which is this new 574 that’s been revamped with ridged outsoles.

Most of the traditional base layer materials of the 1980s classic are carried over, but the biggest difference to call point on this installment is that the N logos on the lateral and medial panels have been tossed out. Sultry suede overlays are drenched in a muted gray hue, and paired up with khaki mesh underlays and off-white accents that are sprinkled to the lateral heel overlays and rear molds. Stacked below this is a three-toned midsole and toothy outsole, the latter of which is formed with a gum finish to string together its elevated aesthetic.

Dropping alongside the kicks is a full range of garment-dyed apparel pieces. The collection is comprised of cozier pieces such as a pullover hoodie, baby blue tee for those warm Summer days in the park, gray sweatpants and a range of socks.

A global launch is going down on May 7 via T-HOUSE & select retailers.
