New Balance’s Tokyo Design Studio (TDS) has pioneered new collaborations and elevated models with its various footwear releases over the years. Kicking off its releases for 2023, the TDS 574 — which originally launched in 2018 — makes its return in a gray “2040” colorway.
Inspired by New Balance’s 2040, the presentation features the silhouette’s signature combination of style and technology with various grays accented by navy, red and black hits. By removing the typical “N” logo found on the original 574, a neutral and modern look has been crafted. A black shark sole developed with Vibram technology gives another contemporary flair to the shoe while its mixed mesh and premium nubuck material composition offers classic New Balance detailing. The resulting pair is a careful balance of styling, landing somewhere between sneaker and dress shoe in its form.
Landing on shelves as a release exclusive to Japan, the New Balance TDS 574 “2040” will be available on February 3. Look for it to arrive via New Balance Japan at a price of ¥30,800 JPY (approx. $236 USD) and stay tuned for any international release information.
For more of the latest in footwear, New Balance has prepared the 1906R “Cordura Pack” with pouches, arriving in wheat and all-black colorways.
