The Ronnie Fieg x Dover Street Market x New Balance 574 Sport Collection Releases this Friday

Ronnie Fieg has officially unveiled all three colorways of New Balance’s latest 574 Sport, releasing in conjunction with Dover Street Market.

New Balance’s modernized silhouette combines elements of the classic off-road runner with new-age styling, featuring Fresh Foam technology in the midsole, a mono-sockliner and interchangeable velcro “N” logos with 28 different color options. The “N” patches also include leather, nubuck and reflective offerings.

The collection pays homage to some of the classics within the 574 lineage, while also incorporating various elements and details influenced by Ronnie Fieg and Dover Street Market.

Each model features co-branded insoles along with extra laces and a special “N” system packaging.

A reptilian texture acutely works select portions of the base while a brown sole punctuates the outer.

Watch Photographers Swopes & David Hubacher Get the Perfect Shots in the New Balance 247 Sport

From equipment choices like cameras and lenses to creative decisions like composition and shooting angle, photographers with different specialties can capture the same subject in myriad manners. Taking that idea and running with it, our friends at Hypebeast and New Balance linked Chicago-based urban photographer Swopes with Swiss nature shooter David Hubacher to check out the nuances of their styles. With neither having been to the other’s city previously, Swopes and David spent a week exchanging techniques while hiking, climbing, and negotiating their way to some epic shots.

Along the journey, we documented the mashup of new photography spots and new cultural learning while the pair test drove the New Balance 247 Sport. The latest evolution of the 247 is designed with comfort and mobility in mind and the pair tested out exactly that — from the abandoned train tracks in Chicago to the lakes outside of Zurich. Watch the complete video above to see Swopes and Hubacher in action and hear them speak on their experience.

Pick up the 247 Sport Pack on the official New Balance web store starting February 4, with a European release to follow on February 11. Then, keep your eyes peeled for the next installment of our City 2 City series, pairing creatives from around the world, next week.
