With just a little over four months until the opening ceremonies in London, all the major sneaker brands are readying for an Olympic summer with new designs and tributes to glorious memories. Much of Nike’s attention is focused on the Dream Team and its 20th anniversary, adidas is looking further back into the past for models from the ’70s and ’80s and now New Balance trumps them all for historical references, albeit indirectly. This fresh New Balance US574 ‘Boston 2012’ release celebrates the fact that ever since the success of the first modern Olympiad nearly 120 years ago, every third Monday in April has been marked by marathoners running through Beantown‘s character-filled streets. This classic NB style is a perfect match for a race that’s world renown even if it’s not the absolute biggest, and you’ll find these ‘Boston 2012″ US574s just a Midnight Ride away at Cambridge’s Concepts.
