New Balance Hybrid / Trail Shoe
The 57/40 is the answer to a question that is simple, yet astronomical in scale. What if we updated the most New Balance shoe of all time – the 574? Despite its legacy of unassuming, almost effortless versatility, the original 574 was a unique design for its era, a hybrid road/trail design that didn’t lean on visible technical features.
The 57/40 approaches the hybrid concept with a few extra years’ worth of design developments to explore and creates a new perspective on an iconic design. An overall sleeker silhouette with a range of exaggerated features. The unique midsole combines a flared take on the classic 574 construction with ‘90s tech-inspired details, while the mudguard and eyerow feature the distinctive wavy embellishments of the ‘80s.
