This Thursday, May 13th, New Balance will launch its Sonic Welded Collection at Fred Segal in Santa Monica, California. The collection includes a men’s New Balance 574 in three colorways and a women’s New Balance 410. The 574 will release in Brown Suede/Neon Orange, Black Suede/Electric Blue, and Grey Suede/Neon Yellow. The 410 will release in Brown Suede/Neon Yellow.
