Nike’s Considered Design has been looking to make sneakers ‘greener’ for a good while now and here’s a look at one of the ways New Balance takes a little stress offa Mother Earth. The New Balance 574 Sonic is every bit as iconic as the OG 574s, and they’re a bit more environmentally friendly thanks to sonic welding that holds the upper together and reduces both material and glue consumption.
