New Balance‘s “Tokyo Limited Editon” pack of 574s has looked to influential Japanese retailers like mita and BILLY’s as launching points for city-centric colorways, and now the offerings are being rounded off by an atmos-only style with a Rasta-influenced color scheme, a nod to a popular color combo on the city streets.
Unlike its above-mentioned mita and BILLY’s counterparts — which used a suede and leather build — atmos’ exclusive 574 uses leather as a base material. Black tumbled leather is present on the mudguard, midfoot and heel, surrounding black mesh toeboxes, tongues and collars. The midfoot’s N logo is done up in metallic silver and trimmed with red.
Multi-colored stylings are most vibrant on the lower half, thanks to a red heel clip with black NB branding and a double-stacked ENCAP midsole that sandwiches a slab of green foam under the heel before laying a bed of yellow foam under the entire foot. This tri-colored assemblage is repeated on the tongue’s branded tag, while final touches of yellow on the heel branding and the exclusive hangtag round off the look.
Expect this atmos-exclusive New Balance 574 to release on the atmos webstore come August 12, with a tax-included MSRP of ￥14,300 JPY (approximately $130 USD).
