Editor’s Notes: Joe Freshgoods isn't done conversing with New Balance.

New Balance's "Conversation Amongst Us" series, spearheaded by creative director Mr. Joe "Freshgoods" Robinson, proceeds with the New Balance 574's release.

Like the collection's 550 and 2002R kicks, the New Balance 574 "Conversation Amongst Us" follows a similar off-white color scheme.

A yellowish radiance — "dawn glow," as New Balance calls it — and grey accents further complement the New Balance 574's intentional aged colorway.

My personal favorite detail? Joe Freshgoods' New Balance 574 shoe features a pre-scuffed design on the outsole, taking the collection's timeworn feel a step further.

The collection's tasteful vintage look is undoubtedly aesthetically pleasing, but it also epitomizes the historical significance of the Conversations Amongst Us collection.

Conversations Amongst Us sees Joe Freshgoods highlight the importance of dialogues within the Black community.

For the 574, JFG engages in a new yet familiar exchange with track and field star Trayvon Bromell, digging deep for a talk surrounding life purposes.

Fans of the "Conversation Amongst Us" series will also be happy to know Mr. Freshgoods and New Balance are also revisiting past discussions via a restock of the fan-favorite cream 550.

More clean JFG x New Balance 550s and a new 574 on the same day? Indeed, there's sure to be much chatter on August 11.
