If you’re at all familiar with CNCPTS’ pedigree then you are aware of their history of patriotic New Balance releases. Last year it was the killer New Balance 999 ‘Kennedy’ and before that the Freedom Trail pairs served up similar a American history lesson. Honoring that tradition is this trio exclusive to them and unionmade out in SF, a New Balance set riffing off that upcoming holiday that will have us all outside BBQ’ing until the sun goes down. The New Balance 574 ‘4th of July’ pack includes three different Made in USA pairs all blocked in honor of the red, white, and blue. Click through with us to see detailed photos of all three pairs from the New Balance 574 ‘4th of July’ pack which will arrive on June 30th, coinciding with a BBQ at CNCPTS out in Boston to celebrate the release.
that "usa made" in the back is too tacky and takes from the shoe. the tag on the tongue works enough for me.
