It’s bold. It’s classic. It’s the sneaker everyone knows and loves, and it just got even better. On Saturday July 15, we’re dropping the New Balance 574 Sport. It has all of your favorite features of the original 574, but with a sleeker, more modern design.

So why do you need it?

1. It’s not your dad’s sneaker

Yes, we all know that the 574 has been dubbed the chunky “dad” sneaker, but this, my friends, is not that! The sleek design has taken down the chunk factor and is perfect for the modern-day wearer. But don’t worry —the comfort from your dad’s coveted sneakers still remains to keep your feet feeling great all day long.

2. Pays homage to the original sneaker

Design cues for this new sneaker were taken straight from the DNA of the original 574. These key elements were elevated to take this sneaker to a whole new level.

3. Perfect combination of casual and sport

New Balance’s running and casual styles combine in this fresh sneaker to bring you the ultimate everyday shoe. The 574 Sport’s comfort comes from its re-envisioned sole unit including Fresh Foam cushioning and an Abzorb crash pad, making it your new go-to sneaker no matter what the occasion.

4. Comes in fresh, stylish colors, and OG colors

For the rest of the year we’ll be seeing plenty of new colorways in the New Balance 574 Sport, but we’ll also be seeing some old favorites taken from the original 574. Do you want a new color or an OG color? You’ll probably need both, so stay tuned for more releases later this year.

5. Made from only the best materials

Staying true to form, New Balance brings you only the best. The 574 Sport is a high-quality sneaker made from premium materials. Each pack has a different combination of suede, mesh, and/or leather, while the outsole is lightweight, solid rubber to take on any surface. Quality? Durability? This shoe has it and you need it.
