Nice combination of a 710 with that sole, looks like a minimalist sole.  This is way nicer than the MH988 with fresh foam.  Don't like furry kicks but the long suede works well on these.  Would definitely get them if I can find them.

Great!  I would like to see NB have options for every part of the shoe, like offering a color choice for the sole.  I did their custom 574s when they first started it, got tired after I did my 6th or so pair.  Then again I've been hooked on colabs and limited edition NB, so customs don't do much for me anymore.

Wonder if the color from Levis blue jeans transfers onto the sneakers.  Had that problem with other jeans so I kept them rolled up.  Notice the illustrations show the jeans covering the foot.

Seriously adidas, you only make 200 pairs of the better colorway (blue mid sole and yellow sole) for people like josh duhamel and you churn out the generic white mid sole for the masses who puts the coins in your coffer? Screw this, I won't buy this boring ass shoe that looks like every other boost shoe adidas makes.  They should start making only 200 of every model they come out with an sell them to celebrities only, see if that moves your profit margin.

Seriously, New Balance needs to stop making 574's.  Maybe it costs less to make a 574 instead of another model, whatever their reason it's time to let the 574's become a rare model to find.

These look like women's hi top.  Would love to see this blue perforated pigskin on a 1400 or 1600, very nice material.  I've seen the fresh foam mid sole crushed from wear on the runners fresh foam.  What's up with new balance shoes showing up in Europe before the U.S, if it does hit the U.S. at all?

I've seen really hideous designs by designers working with big sneaker brands, even from Owens but this is pretty good.  Not too over the top, an acceptable blend with new adidas running technology.  Would like to see on foot pictures though.  Like the black runner spring blade.

It's about time to put a fork in the 574's, most of what new balance puts out are 574's.  Hopefully the Authors pack will have a nicer one.

This was not a pretty shoe to begin with, there's only one out of the lot that is a little likable and it's by 24 Kilates.  Seems like every one was trying to stay away from a simple colorway, and no one did anything to the mid-soles.

I always had a problem with sheet like this and anything glove like.  These better have a billion functions cause if these were designed for the look alone it is ass ugly.  What a lazy design, there is no form following function here at all.  Can't believe most of the complaints are thrown at the colors.

Huaraches always seem to have glue oozing from the seams.  Don't think there's a great deal of quality control when they're made, I recently bought 3 different pairs and they're all the same.  Somehow all black or the all white Huaraches are not that appealing.  The slate blue which didn't seem to have been released was the colorway I was holding out for.  Oh well.

First off the hender scheme looks like the New Balance 373 not a 1300.  The lagerfeld looks like someone who don't wear sneakers approved the design.  And I'm not sure designers can be sued for making shoes similar to other companies' design, if they say it's a homage to whatever brand and didn't get permission then yeah.  Most of the retro sneakers coming out from all the big companies look alike, maybe it was a common style that every company used and put their take on them.  Converse running shoes & Asics Onitsuka, adidas country, Rebook classic leather, Saucony Jazz.  All of those shoes used wedge mid sole and they all look similar.  I am not a fan of most sneaker designers that make over the top stuff like Raf Simmons or Rick Owens adidas, I like stuff from designers like Yohji Yamamoto & most of Ronnie Fieg designs. Simple creative stuff always appeal to me.

Is it possible for SneakerNews to say if the kicks they write about will ever be released in the US? Been a fan of Gel Lyte 3s ever since Fieg touched them.  Now I can't say no to any of them.  My recent favorite is the blue glow in the dark.

Best Internationalist colorway.  I love these but if it fits the same as the internationalist I tried on from Jcrew then it's gonna be narrow as hell on my foot.  I read an article that said something about the original ones having different widths but I haven't seen any being sold that way.  Oh well back to new balance for me.

Picked up the France over the weekend. It came with both pairs of flat white, flat red laces and of course Kith's blue & white rope laces.  The suede is so soft on these.

I like MJ but for a wealthy guy his wardrobe is dated.  Guess he's comfortable with it, which is sad cause he can easily advertise a clothing line with what he wears.  MJ needs a stylist, the right kind of Air Jordans go with anything.  It works for David Beckham.

I had a mask when I use to ride my bike often in the city, it had a removable filter.  There were times when I hyperventilated and had to remove it before I passed out.  Hope this filters street pollution and it's a lot easier to breathe in.

This is almost nice, not liking the idea of a removable 'N'.  The multicolored N is tacky, they should've just stuck with a permanent solid color N an be done.

Why would anyone want to get these?  you can customize your own 574 at new balance dot com and make a better colorway, you might not get to choose the same colors though.  The Ronnie Fieg's Liberty Fairs was a simple colorway that was nice.  If new balance stops making 574s then it'd be hard to get your hands on these.

Nice, it's the classic stan smith in a reversed color way.  The suede gives it that slight two tone shade of green.  Very nice.

These Reebox Camo NPC2 are very light and flexible, they fit a bit snug.  The tongue is attached to the shoe all the way up to the top eyelet, so you can wear them without laces if you want.  My pair was made a bit sloppy, found glue where there shouldn't have been, the stitching around the sole was uneven(very long and short stitches ).  Will see how long it holds up.  They're also supposed be water proof, will take them out when it rains.

I loved the New York and Miami (mostly the NY) Asics Fieg did, I'm not that keen on the colors of this one.  Maybe I need to see them in person. That line was a joke, these will never be on shelves.
