Last week the New Balance + Horween collaborations dropped (see post below), but I couldn’t rationalize the $400 for sneakers. What’s a fashion conscience sneakerhead to do? Why, hit up eBay for a previous Limited Edition M574 in Brown Leather! And guess what? I paid $49 all in for them to. They’re already here and getting some foot time. Great color, barely ever worn, clean and sanitized. Nothing like a soft premium leather sneaker with a goods sole!
The 574 is a classic NB silhouette. You can customize your own these days on the New Balance website in a variety of colors. Premium leather, on the other hand, is something you have to hunt down.
