School’s out for summer but New Balance is already getting ready for a new set of supplies and books, even a bit earlier than we’d expected. The New Balance 574 ‘Backpack’ (pack?) brings together five solid-colored Five Seventy-Fours in nylon with white accents and golden suede branding elements. The diamond tongue tag and its notched loop is what really drives this set home, and given their super-reasonable price point and the number of older heads who’ll instantly see these as a time machine to their youth, we expect them to be gone from Finish Line just as quickly as this set previously slated for an August drop snuck up on us.
