Light suede and mesh on the New Balance 574. Secure lace closure. Supportive ENCAP midsole. Rubber outsole for traction and durability. The New Balance 574 is imported. Crafted in 1988 the New Balance 574 was the first of its kind, the model combined two of New Balance's best for an all-new mashup. The Men's New Balance 574 Casual Shoes look to continue that rich heritage.
