New Balance “Summer Solution” Collection – New Balance thrives off of its archives, and with summer approaching, they take the classic 574 ad 996 to develop the “Summer Solution” collection. Mid-year weather works best with warm tonse, and New Balance takes a beachy, sun-bleached theme to the different colorways. The silhouette of the 574 and 996 remain largely the same, but the newly adopted updated soles make the collection appeal to lifestyle instead of sport. The 574 comes with a Minimus MW00 outsole, while 996 inherits the 890’s REVlite outsole. It’s nice to see that New Balance is doing more than just updating colors, and has taken an interest in improving the feel of their classic runners.
