There have been a lot of shoe trends to come and go over the last few seasons, but one thing that has remained constant is our love of sneakers. It began with box-fresh white sneakers and went on to see us obsessing over adidas Stan Smiths, colorful sneakers and most recently dad sneakers. New Balance and Swarovski are teaming up on a collection that is going to have every fashionista clamoring for crystal-encrusted sneakers.
To celebrate New Balance NB1 574s being a popular shoe style for the last few decades, the shoe brand has collaborated with Swarovski to give the shoes a makeover for the occasion. The finished sneakers still have the same sporty shape we love from the NB1 574s, but it has been blinged up with the New Balance logo being crafted out of Swarovski crystals. What’s more, the range with include pearlized leather accents and embossing along with some optional ribbon laces.
There’s a lot of bling in the collection so the collection has a more neutral color palette. The New Balance x Swarovski shoes are available in 12 different colorways with the selection focused on wear-with-everything black, white and gray tones.
If you want the shoes, note that the price is steeper than your traditional NB1 574s because of the crystals. A pair of the limited-edition kicks will set you back $300. They will launch on March 15 exclusively on the NB1 customization platform on the New Balance website.
