Happy 14th Birthday, Barron Trump: All the Times He Wore His Favorite Go-To Sneakers

Barron Trump turns 14 today. Son of President Donald Trump and Melania Trump, the teenager has spent the past few years growing up in front of the nation’s eyes — literally. He now towers over his 6-foot-3 father and 5-foot-11 mother.

Throughout his time in the spotlight, Barron has often turned to one pair of shoes in particular: the New Balance 574 Core sneakers. The youngster, now 14, has repeatedly chosen the classic style ever since his father took office.

On Jan. 17, 2020, he matched a black colorway of the kicks with a green Alpha Industries bomber jacket, a T-shirt and black pants while walking to Air Force 1 with his parents.

Weeks earlier, Barron Trump arrived at the White House alongside his mother and father in another pair of New Balance sneakers. The reflective detailing on the shoe appeared to glow in the dark.

Featuring a mixed suede and mesh upper with a rubber outsole, the 574 Core retails for just $80 with customizable colorways available for $150 using New Balance’s customization service. The boy sported a familiar all-black version of the shoe around Thanksgiving in 2019.

The teenager has also worn the camel suede colorway with a slate heel counter and a soft gray logo; he matched the iteration with a red puffer jacket, a white polo shirt and khakis, while Melania chose Gianvito Rossi boots to match her cold-weather chic look in March 2019.

A younger-looking Barron favored a navy suede version of the sneakers in 2017, dressing them down with a graphic T-shirt and trousers on the White House lawn and amping them up with a layered suit look on the tarmac.
