New Balance’s 327 has been released in a consistent stream of colorways all year long, and now it has resurfaced onto our radar with a new mesh build. This variation gets brought to life not too far out from when its “Made in Japan” offering that’s devised with Tochigi leather was unveiled.
For this latest installment, New Balance retains elements like the oversized N logos and shaggy suede overlays on the rear end but leans on different materials to form the side walls and overlays. The traditional synthetic fabrics that make up the lateral and medial panels have been discarded and replaced by a more airy mesh layer which comes treated with white and red color-blocking. N branding and the overlays nearest the throat and toe boxes are all engineered with smooth leathers, the former being dyed in a dark navy while the latter is generated in a soft white hue. More red accents poke out through the tongue branding as well as the smaller stripes on the midsoles. To finish things off, the waffle treading down below is covered in all-black.
If you’re interested in copping, you can pick these up over at New Balance right now for $110 USD.
