I recently started a new job as a high school Math teacher and was in need of a new shoe. I had been wearing the On Cloud Stratus but they were discontinued, so I went to my local Footlocker in search of a replacement. My eyes were immediately drawn to a navy blue New Balance 574. After trying them on, I was sold. Here’s why I think the New Balance 574 is the ultimate teacher shoe.
First and foremost, the 574 strikes the perfect balance between casual and professional. It’s comfortable enough to wear all day long, but still looks good enough to wear into a meeting or out for happy hours after work. And that’s important for us teachers, because let’s face it – we don’t always have time to change our shoes between school and our after-school commitments!
Second, the 574 has one of the best aesthetics on the market. It comes in a wide range of colors and styles, so you can really find one that suits your personality. And it looks good with just about any outfit – jeans, dress pants, skirts, you name it.
Third, it’s durable. The 574 is built with premium materials like suede leathers, and the craftsmanship is through the roof. I’ve had mine for a couple of weeks and they still look as good as new.
Fourth, the mesh materials on toe accounts for excellent breathability – crucial for us teachers who are on our feet all day long! Plus, the plush ankle liner and doubled foam tongue hug your foot so you never have to worry about blisters or soreness.
The Icing On The Cake
But the icing on the cake is the ENCAP midsole. I have to stand for 6-7 hours a week in front of my class, so I needed a shoe that could keep me well cushioned and comfortable throughout the day. And this new balance 574 delivered more than I could imagine. And the price point is incredible–I only paid $59.99!
So there you have it! The New Balance 574 is the perfect shoe for teachers (or really anyone who is on their feet all day). They’re comfortable, stylish, and affordable. Give them a try and see for yourself! You won’t regret it.
