The New Balance Tokyo Design Studio 574 Gets Grayed Out

As premium as it gets.

From the FuelCell RC Elite v2 to the RC_1300, New Balance's Tokyo Design Studio has been responsible for some of the American brand's most iconic designs, and the same can certainly be said about the upcoming New Balance Tokyo Design Studio 574 "Grey." The latest colorway to grace the tailor-inspired sneaker, which originally launched back in 2018, make sure you keep it locked to find out everything that you need to know.

The first thing that you'll notice about this TDS 574 is just how gray it is. From its engineered mesh base to its premium nubuck overlays, everything is dipped in the tonal colorway. A dash of red spices up the heel counter, and if you haven't noticed already, the New Balance logo has been totally removed from the sidewalls for a sleek and seamless aesthetic that won't look too out of place with a suit.

Bold navy hues hit the tongue, and complementary accents venture towards the shark tooth midsole underfoot, which is infused with Vibram technology for comfort and cushioning that's kind of hard to beat.

Launching on February 3rd, the New Balance Tokyo Design Studio 574 "Grey" will be available exclusively in Japan in extremely limited quantities. With that said, if you desperately need a pair in your collection, you can get them straight from Ox Street very soon. Let us know what you think of this coveted colorway, and in related news, Junya Watanabe just teased a New Balance 1906R collab at Paris Fashion Week!
