SNEAKER DIVERSITY: New Balance 574 – Happy Blue

Most if not all sneakerheads are very familiar with the New Balance 574 sneaker. It is one of the most comfortable sneakers on the market and very stylish at the same time. Take it from me when I say that you will feel like you’re walking on a cloud in these sneakers…I’m flat footed so I’m HUGE on the comfort factor.


One of the things that New Balance is also known for is being very practical and not too flashy, hence why you don’t see too many people wearing them. One of the reasons for this is New Balance sneakers are not as available as the other top brands…mind you they have started to pop more and more in the commercial stores like Foot Locker and Champs.


Well you won’t find the New Balance 574 – Happy Blue in your local sneaker shop…in fact you’ll be lucky if you ever see these beautiful kicks on the street. The first time I saw these kicks was in 2012 and I have yet to see them ANYWHERE! That being said…I still want them…how could you not?


The New Balance 574 – Happy Blue will have ALL sneakerheads turning their heads to catch a glimpse of what is on your feet. When is the last time you have seen a suede Happy Blue and Bright Yellow sneaker? How about NEVER! As plain as they may come across…they are just perfect the way they are. If you are ever going to take the journey outside your sneaker comfort zone this would be a perfect sneaker to make that transition. When people see in these kicks you’ll surely be smiling and when people ask you why you’re smiling you will say…

Because I’m happy
Clap along if you feel like a room without a roof
Because I’m happy
Clap along if you feel like happiness is the truth
Because I’m happy
Clap along if you know what happiness is to you
Because I’m happy
Clap along if you feel like that’s what you wanna do


Get it? Happy BlueHappy the hit song by Pharrell? LOL…sorry I had to do it…because I can see myself doing a very wonderful 2 step in these sneakers if I’m lucky enough to find them! Shout out to Pharrell for just making GOOD music!
