Create Your Own New Balance 574

I know New Balance’s 574 is as far from a basketball shoe as you can get. Still though, the die-hards this brand have will love this news.

New Balance is the latest brand to hop on the customization train. You can now design your own version of the 574 running shoe on NB’s site.
Have some fun with the design process and see what you can come up with. The best part of the news on these DIYs is that it won’t take an eternity to get the shoes on your feet. New Balance says that your pair will be shipped out within four to eight business days after your order is placed. No word yet on if they’ll turn the N on the shoe sideways as a tribute to Zydrunas Ilgauskus (I’m guessing it’s doubtful, actually).

Check out this video (complete with retro feel) on the process of building a New Balance sneak.
