Custom NB 574
About a year ago, I coined this phrase because I felt it was a representation of me, as an individual. I’d like to consider myself a refined gentleman with a rugged side. Sometimes I want to bring the .380 out (thuggin’) with a Hill-Side floral hanky wrapped around it (semi-thuggin’) OK, that’s not true.
Once Darian sent along some ideas for his very own U.S. made custom New Balance 574, I had to swaggerjack. It’s a great idea by New Balance and frankly, my skepticism about the customization quality being sub par were muffled with this video showing their process, top to bottom. So far, love them and I will certainly spread my semi-thuggin’ love around with them, as well.
