Brand: New Balance
Model: Begins X MS574
Colourway: Blue / Orange
Came across these whilst checking out the latest New Balance releases on Sneaker Freaker. The 574 is a shoe I love as it is, but with this sky blue and orange upper, they really set off. Futhermore, I would never have expected to dig a shoe so much that’s influenced by something as monotonous as fishing.
The suede as ever makes these look really fresh, but the additions brought by ‘Begins’ founder Zhou Bichang make all the difference. The debossed New Balance ‘N’, the embossed multicoloured ‘574’ on the tongue, and the cork heels, all look immense.
Unfortunately I can’t find anywhere these are for sale. Being a colab, they’re going to be pretty few and far between, making the resale price pretty excessive. Oh well, you can’t have it all!
