The footwear is TDS's reinterpretation of the iconic 574, which since its release in the 1980s has become New Balance's most popular model. The new model, TDS 574, will be released for the first time ever. While placing importance on New Balance footwear's classic design code, the contemporary reinterpretation also provides exceptional comfort, resulting from high-quality design and cutting-edge technology. Unbound by the constraints of the sneaker and dress shoe categories, the shoes can be styled in a range of ways as new authentic footwear for contemporary times.
The upper retains the New Balance 574’s classic design code, based on the tip, saddle and foxing structure while adding an edge, commonly used in dress shoes, to create a double edge detail around the base. The N logo has been boldly removed from the side of the shoe, moving beyond the conventions of New Balance footwear to create a neutral, modern look.
