Perhaps the most ubiquitous model in the New Balance catalog is the 574, a certifiable entry into the Mount Rushmore of dad shoes. For 2022, NB is reintroducing the model to the market in true-to-the-original form with premium materials called the 574 Legacy; this otherwise elevates the baseline set by the 574 after decades of affordability.
As part of Bodega’s ongoing streak of collaborations for its 15th Anniversary, this New Balance 574 Legacy features hairy suede in royal blue and a shaved suede in yellow. Both are complemented by perforated suedes at the ankle collar and the medial N logo, while a classic reflective silver plates the lateral side as well as the heel-tabs. The tongue sees a new logo ported over from the hang-tag — a modified logo of the original 574.
After an initial release in Paris at Bodega’s pop-up installation, the Bodega x New Balance 574 Legacy is scheduled to release in-store and online on July 15th, 2022 at 12pm EST.
