Introduced in 1988, the 574 was an instant favorite, but not just among runners. A simple design experiment combining a road and trail runner was the idea: a shoe meant to cover more terrain, and it did. Blurring the lines between performance and everyday wear, the 574 made its mark as one of the first true go-anywhere sneakers. Today, the 574 is known worldwide for its versatility and classic design synonymous with our brand heritage. This version celebrates Grey Day and the iconic color that’s embedded in New Balance DNA.
