We are officially one week away from the first day of spring, and that means that it’s time to break out the new running kicks and get outside. If you’re looking for a new running sneaker to brace the outdoor trails with, consider the new New Balance Windbreaker Collection launching today online and in stores nationwide. One of New Balance’s most iconic silhouettes, the classic retro 574 took on new life in 2012 with the birth of the Backpack Collection which brought with it bright hues, rich material stories, and obsessive attention to detail. Now in 2013, New Balance hits the ground running with the big technological upgrade to the 574 in the Windbreaker Collection, The Windbreaker 574 features a ripstop synthetic upper, Other upgrades include a higher instep in the midsole, deeper toe box, wider forefoot and a tighter fit around the heel. Of course there is no 574 without the familiar ENCAP® midsole technology, that combines a supportive, durable rim of polyurethane and a soft cushioning core of EVA that allows for supreme comfort.
The New Balance 574 Windbreaker Collection is available starting today, Wednesday, March 13th at select Foot Locker stores and online at Footlocker.com. Each sneaker in the collection retails for $75. More photos and links to buy can be found below. Check the Launch Locator here to see which stores will be carrying the collection.
