Texture Alert! Something many makers gloss over is the effect a goof texture will have on clothing. Not new balance though.
New Balance‘s classic 574 silhouette gets another update with the release of a brand new “Woven” pack for Summer 2014. Taking the woven bib of the original and reworking it to cover the entirety of the shoe’s upper, the new design sheds traditional paneling in favor of a mostly seamless, lightweight upper of just three separate panels while retaining the aesthetic styling of the original thanks to custom weaving and color-blocking.
Retailing for $99.95 USD, New Balance’s woven 574s will be available online and at select retailers beginning June 1. Just don’t get them in royal unless you’ve got the entire Knicks jersey thing going (ouch!)
