When one enters their 30s, one is invariably forced to consider their status in relation to societal expectations of adulthood. The fact is that 30 is kind of old – not so old that you have to admit it, but old enough to make it difficult to identify with the youngins. But for those nearing the precipice, there’s still hope.
New Balance’s 574 has just celebrated the dawning of its third decade, and has found the ideal way to remind why age is no barrier. Dipping back into the brand’s collaborative back-catalogue, the 574 has selected four iconic moments in sneaker history and constructed its very own re-enactments. One way in which the runner asserts its appeal is by donning the colourway of a 2007 release consisting of a 577 colab with Sneakersnstuff. It just goes to show, the longer it’s been around, the better it knows how to celebrate in style.
