In the beginning of 2017, New Balance introduced the world to the 247 silhouette that served as a lifestyle-engineered sneaker that took inspiration from a number of the brand’s iconic heritage models. Billed as a sneaker that could be worn during all occasions, it harkened back to models the likes of the New Balance 576, the New Balance 998, and the New Balance 1300JP. Its sleek and sport upper was complimented by a Revlite cushioning system and a ventilated, knit toebox, that lended toward a lightweight, breathable and comfortable ride.
Now, the Boston-based purveyor of all-things-comfy is ready to introduce the world to the 247 V2. In an attempt to further blur the lines between lifestyle and sport, the V2 combines NB’s superior craftsmanship with new technology that takes the sneaker to the next level. Its upper is slightly chunkier than that of the V1 – perfectly fitting in with today’s most on-trend sneakers – which will remind loyal fans of the brand of many past offerings. Exaggerated proportions on its midsole as well as a flared rear creates one of the most comfortable sneakers on the planet intended for all-day wear.
