After getting a preview last month, the initial New Balance M564 colorways are beginning to hit select retailers. A lowtop trail runner designed by NB Japan, the M564 offers a one-piece toebox with perforations through its suede instead of mesh, corded laces and a unique eyelet-strap that should make for superior heel lockdown. As for the colorways, all four of these are well thought-out and each one is bound to appeal to its own audience. Click through to see more of the bred pair pictured above plus tonal brown, black/white/royal and last but not least a pair in electric blue with neon pink accents. If you like what you see, check for these at New Balance retailers soon; StreeThing reports they’ve already released in SE Asia.
