New Balance's Backpack 574

The New Balance 574 sneaker is something of a modern day classic. A favorite with the fashion pack as well as with regular dudes, the retro kicks are easy-going and comfortable. Plus, they pair with everything from crisp, cuffed chinos to your worn-out jeans. Which might explain why the brand is constantly reinventing the style—they currently offer 108 variations of the 574 for men. But it's their latest iteration of the iconic sneaker that spoke to the little sneakerhead of our youth. Cut from ballistic nylon in bold primary colors with suede patches, they're inspired by the old backpacks we all lugged around school. Available in five colors, the nostalgic style is just as breathable and cushy as the original, with the added benefit of being a bit more water resistant.
