New Balance is running things right now, excuse the pun. Not only is the brand catering to sneakerheads looking to bring some retro charm to their rotation with silhouettes like the 327 and 550, but it’s also bringing the heat with future-facing flagships like the 57/40. The New Balance 57/40 does a bit of both, though. Building on the iconic New Balance 574, the 57/40 breathes new life into the style that has become a pillar of the brand's offering.

Drawing on elements of '80s and '90s style, the beauty of the New Balance 57/40 is that it’s difficult to define stylistically. That means that it fits naturally into any fit it finishes. But, along with a range of adjustments to the silhouette, most notably a reengineered sole unit, what really pulls us towards the New Balance 57/40 are its colorways.

From understated neutrals to out-there multicolor iterations, there's a 57/40 for all moments. To prove it, we've rounded up 10 of our favorites that illustrate the style range of the silhouette.
