New Balance is celebrating the 30th anniversary of its popular 574 silhouette this year, and while this upcoming Swarovski-themed pack is a bit more flashy than this trio of classic New Balance grey colorways, it pales in comparison to this crystal-coated Air Jordan 1 we saw earlier today. Here, the Swarovski crystals are confined to the brand's "N" logo, appearing on a 574 that can be customized through New Balance's NB1 platform. Available in both men's and women's sizes, the retro runner will be offered in a black, white, or grey suede build, complete with perforated paneling on the vamp, tongue and collar. The Swarovski crystals come in gunmetal or platinum, while silver dubraes and optional ribbon laces provide a complementary design flourish. Retailing for $300, the kicks will be available March 15th at newbalance.com
