Throughout the Spring 2021 season, the New Balance 574 has picked up a substantial amount of steam as it has dropped in a duo of colorways in partnership with the New Balance Tokyo Design Studio and revealed reinterpreted styles such as its logo-less “Un-N-Ding” makeup. And ahead of Summer, the lifestyle silhouette has been readied with a fresh new “Incense” makeover that has now been revealed through official imagery.
There’s no special aroma to these kicks unfortunately, but its palette is certainly one that radiates a sense of cleanliness. A majority of its upper construction is made up of TENCEL™ Lyocell and chrome-free suede, all of which is submerged in the shoe’s “Incense” hue. More areas dialed to its titular shade include the heel overlays and N logos, both of these deviating with smooth leathers, as well as the tongue patches which are formed with a cork-like texture. Neighboring these components are touches of “Angora” which are dropped on the mesh collars and toe boxes as well as the laces and leather mid-foot overlays. Midsoles are presented with white and gray color-blocking and get finished off with a gum outsole.
Elsewhere in sneaker news, the New Balance Made in England 920 “Desert Scape Pack” just dropped.
