I come at this article with a fair bit of bias—the New Balance 574 sits in my top three favourite sneakers of all time.
But bias aside the reimagined model, collab’d with COMME des GARÇONS, is pretty sweet.
This collaboration debuted at Paris Fashion Week, where various New Balance styles were repped on Junya Watanabe’s Fall/Winter 2019 runway; the 1500, 990v5 and 574. Basically, the OG dad shoes.
The show, titled “Silver Swagger” with a full parade of silver-haired stylish dudes, featured New Balance silhouettes in sleek, minimal colourways and low key branding.
The silhouettes debuted have a release date of August 1, but you can expect a drop celebrating the collaboration on February 1, and rumours are suggesting a 574 and 997S silhouette. Keep it on your radar and get that date in your calendar.
