new balance 574 'nyx' custom

new balance made in the usa custom design new balance uk made by me

you might remember my previous new balance 574 custom post (here), new balance uk were so kind to send me a unique voucher code which enabled me to make up another pair utilising the new custom options online. sadly, the option is still only available in the US, so its time to call in a favour from a friend overseas if you want to make up your own pair!

i opted again for the 574 silhouette, i was super excited to make a reverse colourway to my 'orcas', but the new autumn/winter colourway options didn't feature any pastel colours (sob!). after much debate i decided to take some inspiration from the asics 'leatherback' release, so i went for a black and dark grey suede mix, with synthetic details - which later turned out to be 3M!

i went for the all black mid and outersole, which i just thought finished them off perfectly! i was really disappointed to see new balance had taken away the full grain leather option and the suede isn't as plush as on my first pair - but again the fit, comfort and quality is on point! i was so excited for them to arrive, as with any ID pair you never really know quite how the colours are going to be in person - but i truly love them!

i would advise to size up 1/2 a size if you're thinking of designing a pair, as the customs are way more padded and softer than GR releases, so this causes them to size down!
