New Balance 57/40 - an icon reimagined

Since we firmly believe that 2021 needs an energetic boost to get us started, it comes as a welcome surprise to see that the iconic New Balance 574 sneaker silhouette has had a rather exciting makeover. DRUMROLL... Introducing the New Balance 57/40 to the world - it's an icon reimagined.

The New Balance 574 silhouette was first launched in 1988 and has earned a solid reputation as both a classic and street smart sneaker at the same time. The 57/40 takes the classic look of the 574, but pumps it up with some energised modern touches and a bold and expressive colour palette.

We love the considered combination of leather, suede and mesh finishes, and the stacked midsole and off-road outer sole. The overall result is a combination 80s and 90s-inspired sneaker perfectly positioned to kickstart your year with a bit of vibrant and intentional attitude.


Retailing at R2399.95, the New Balance 57/40s are exclusively available from The Cross Trainer the online store. Launching 9th January 2021.
