The 14 BEST Custom New Balance 574 Sneakers

Best New Balance 574 Customs
Best New Balance 574 Customs

Maybe it’s because I’m a white dude from Boston, but I’ve always loved the New Balance 574s.

When the brand launched their sneaker customizing platform, I was a little hesitant – why mess with a classic?

It’s the same reason the Jordan brand won’t let you customize most of their OG kicks – brand designer’s colorways are the best.

That was until I did some research into what some custom artists have done. It turns out, the 574 body is perfect for customizations.

To demonstrate, I put together a list of the 22 best New Balance 574 customs on the web right now.

New Balance 574 “Red Devil V2”

Created by: Unknown

 

I was just doing some research on “custom New Balances” when I stumbled across these amazing red and black 574s. The body of the sneaker has a leatherish feel, complemented perfectly by the red cap toe. We’re not sure who made these – if you know, please drop it in the comments so I can pay respect!

New Balance 574 “Pink Devils”

Riding the success of both the “red devils” and the Saucony Shadow 5000, custom sneaker artist @bzikoi put together the “pink devils”. The sneakers feature the same body as the red devils, but replaced the red with a vibrant pink.

New Balance 574 “All Black Red Toe”

Created by: Unknown

 

I stumbled on these customs when browsing Google Images to find more customizations. I’m not sure who made them, but I am sure about why they made this list. A very similar color scheme to the “Red Devils”, except the entire sneaker (bottoms included) are black. If you know the artist, tag them in the comments.

New Balance 574 “Midnight Rose 2”

Created by: Angel Gonzalez/Vagrant Sneaker

 

Using New Balance’s [semi] recently launched customizer platform, sneaker artist Angel Gonzalez concocted what he called the “MR 2s”. He uses a mix of contrasting colors (magenta, pink, pacific green and black) to create a silhouette that pops in all the right places.

New Balance 574 “WU Balance”

The 574 ‘Wu Balance’ customs by PKZUNIGA display an sleek black and yellow combo. The colorway is reminiscent of a killer bee, hence the name “Wu Balance” (Wu is short for “Wu Tang Clan, a hip hop group with a smash hit ‘Killer Bees‘).

New Balance 574 “Salmon Toes”

Created by: JP Customs

 

Ronnie Fieg took the sneaker world by storm in 2015, a large part due to his incredibly clean Asics Gel Lyte 3 salmon toes. JP Customs took these 574s to another universe with the same “salmon toe” colorway that helped put Ronnie Fieg on the map. I’ve always been a fan of JP Customs work, these are definitely no exception.

New Balance 574 “Puerto Ricos”

Created by: Angel Gonzalez/Vagrant Sneaker

 

Angel Gonzalez of Vagrant Sneaker makes our list yet again with another 574 custom he made back in 2011. Self dubbed the “Puerto Ricos”, the body of the sneaker embodies the red, white and blue of the Puerto Rican flag. Angel made a clean choice using grey in the body of the sneaker as opposed to white, helping the colors in the toe and heel to pop.

New Balance 574 “Gradient Pack” – Orange / Reds

Created by: New Balance

 

Back in 2012 New Balance released a limited quantity of what they called the “Gradient Pack”. While there were 5 different colorways in the pack, I chose the “Orange and Greys” for this list. If you’re looking to buy these sneakers, good luck, you’ll only be able to find some cheap overseas knock offs or being resoled on eBay.

These grey and tan customs were created by the team at Sneaker News on the in store custom kiosk in New York. I’m exactly sure if their official title is “C-Note”, but either way, these are clean!

New Balance 574 “Heather Grays”

Created by: Mr Ty

 

These popped up on my Nike Talk feed a while back and struck a chord with me. Sneaker artist, Mr. Ty said on the thread:

“I went with four shaded of grey and added teal as the pop color. Quality is AMAZING and the five day turnaround makes them even more appealing”.

I really like this colorway – perfect for spring.

The creative team at New Balance dropped this custom colorway right around the MLB All Star game. This “Baseball Pack” features the colors of the New York Mets, hence the baseball driven name.

    each time i used to read smaller content which also clear their motive, and
    that is also happening with this piece of writing which I am reading now.

    The NB customs look nice. I think I deserved new shoes.

  3. Sally says : Reply

    I thought I liked the black and red, but then I saw the black plum! This brings me back to the days of my youth when you get a new pair of sneakers and you keep them in the box to preserve that ‘new’ smell. I might have to go and try some sneakers on to get it out of my system.

    Not easy to decide which to buy, they all look cool and very comfortable.“MR 2s”, are my best choice, love the mix of contrasting colors (magenta, pink, pacific green and black).

    Wonderful designs on some of these shoes. I think I have some shopping to do for the summer months.

    I had never paid much attention to this brand a couple of years back. I’ve seen their shoes in malls and shoe stores but never had any interest until my sister gave me a pair for my birthday around 5 years ago. I’m more of a hiking boots and hi-cut rubbershoes kinda guy because of the comfort and support I feel when I wear them. The comfort I felt when I wore this brand was truly unexpected. Now, all my low-cut shoes are from this brand.

    My favorite among the is the New Balance 574 “Heather Grays. It has a subtle combination of quiet but classic colors and could be paired with any outfit. I have always been a sneakerhead and I would choose this over a pair of Roshes any day.

    Love the orange sole of the New Balance 574 “Baseball Pack!!! It looks great and the colorway matches the whole look of the shoes. I’d love to run wearing those, so cool

    New balance is a quiet, yet stable brand in my eyes. They must be doing something right as they have definitely stood the test of time.

      New Balance has always been a quiet giant. You don’t really hear a lot of noise and commercials from them.. It’s just like they exude this quiet confidence that just works.

    Those black & red new balance look solid! I have never really been a NB fan, but after seeing this page I just might become one!

  13. sara says : Reply

    I love the Heather Grey shoe. Nothing too flashy to go with my jeans is what I like.

  14. Entoman says : Reply

    NB has always been one of my favorite brands, these styles listed are absolutely dope. Are they all available now? I’ll pick em up in a heartbeat, especially those fly lookin’ ones on the bottom!

  18. Tony D. says : Reply

    I see New Balance tryin to come up! I don’t know i’m still a Nike kinda guy.

  19. Cig says : Reply

    Those orange NBs got a nice pop to them. They’re unique as well. I think I have just the perfect outfit to set them off!

    “The creative team at New Balance dropped this custom colorway right around the MLB All Star game. This “Baseball Pack” features the colors of the New York Mets, hence the baseball driven name.” I did wear different brands of sport shoes, as well the brand for ‘New Balance’ shoes. No matter the reliability of this ‘Baseball Pack’, the shinny blue outlook and shoe-lace let the customers to pay more attention on that.

  21. Bordonaro says : Reply

    Glad to see that New Balance has something for everyone. That’s how a smart shoe company should operate.

  22. Bordonaro says : Reply

    The yellow/black bee color is a nice combination. It’s not a show that I ordinarily would see.

  23. Sarah says : Reply

    I really like the New Your Mets one. It’s smart that the released it during MLB season.

  24. Zerkle says : Reply

    The Puerto Ricos are a nice pair. NB does it again!
