Original Story (09/06/21): Following a couple teasers, Salehe Bembury shares a full look at his next New Balance collab, the 574 “YURT.”
The footwear designer extraordinaire follows up his New Balance 2002R collabs with a unique take on the 574 silhouette. Bembury dresses the uppers in an earthy grey hue, utilizing a mix of hairy suede and mesh netting for its construction. The uppers sit atop new tooling, comprised of a white pebbled ABZORB midsole with grey segments and a black rubber outsole with heavy duty traction. There also a mouthpiece on the back of the heel that acts a whistle which can be used to signal for help if you get lost in the wilderness.
