The last we saw from Stray Rats and New Balance, the two had crafted a beautiful brown rendition of the 827 runner. Now, the dynamic duo is back, kicking off the new year with a special release of the New Balance 574 later this week.

Stray Rats and New Balance first partnered up to create limited-edition sneakers early in 2019, and have been releasing some of the most sought-after collaborations in recent years. In 2020, the two released their take on the New Balance 827, a vintage runner with plenty of surface area to craft a unique color scheme. Now, the two are reaching even further into the NB archives, showing off two bright colorways of the 574 to help kick off the new year later this week. The first pair in the pack comes in what we have learned are the ‘signature’ shades of Stray Rats, a mix of dark and light green shades for the 574’s nylon and suede upper, with hints of purple interspersed throughout. The second pair is even brighter, mixing a pink base layer with dark red suede overlays and hits of bright green to round out the look.


The latest release from Stray Rats and New Balance, this time focusing on the vintage 574, has been scheduled for release later this week, on January 8th, 2021. Launching in two neon color schemes, pairs will be available from both parties as well as select New Balance retailers with a price tag of just $100 per pair. Check out the new project from Stray Rats below for a better look, and stay tuned to JustFreshKicks for more New Balance release news.
