It was the turn of the year when I last wrote a few words on the latest New Balance pre-orders, far too long in my book. So here’s some overdue musings on their latest 574 Connoisseur Painters Sneaks.
Taking influences from notable American Artists renowned for their creative use of colour and materials, these 574’s are rather more ‘Tron’ or ‘Total Recall’, than Jackson Pollock or Andy Warhol.
Despite looking a bit like they’ve been born out of the mind ‘Kuato’ (the baby like dude that pops out of that dudes gut in Paul Verhoevens Mars sci-fi classic) we reckon the neon like ‘N’ side panel on these 574’s will be nailed on hit with avid NB fans. Expect all the usual suede/mesh bells and whistles, along with a rubber outsole and their innovative encap cushioning.
To quote Douglas Quaid; ‘Get your arse to Mars’ … well End actually.
