New Balance combines forces with South Africa's premier sneaker boutique and native artist Dr. Zulu for a unique new take on the 574 as the "City of Gold". Drawing inspiration from the city of Johannesburg, known for its gold trade, this 574 features golden accents throughout the premium black and grey nubuck upper. The shoe also features the "Parktown Prawn" cricket, a pest endemic to South Africa. Removable and interchangeable velcro "N" logos add a final special detail.

The "City of Gold" Dr. Zulu x Shelflife x New Balance 574 is available now at select New Balance retailers, including Kith NYC.
