Yacht voyages are not often the inspiration for trainers, nor are they seen as the appropriate footwear, but this year New Balance have used the off shore culture of New England USA as the inspiration for their limited edition 574 collection.

Using sailor derived materials the 574 features mesh accents and subtle lining details,  drawn from traditional boating blazers, while the laces also follow suite by mimicking braided rope. A thought out detail delivered in an understated fashion.
