The New Balance 327 is nearly two years removed from its April 2020 debut, but it continues being a go-to option for sneaker enthusiasts looking for a stylish, budget-friendly option. It’s role in the Boston-based brand’s 2022 has yet to pan out, but the vintage-inspired model is closing out 2021 with a “Madras Orange/Black” colorway perfect for any end-of-year gathering.
Unlike Casablanca’s inaugural New Balance collaboration, the latest take on “the ultimate leisure shoe” indulges in a nylon base, not perforated leather. Suede material is overlaid at the forefoot, mid-foot and heel, though it opts for a much-more muted tone than on previous iterations of the 1970s-reminiscent silhouette. The brown hue that complements the aforementioned citrus tone also lands on the tongue label’s branding, with lateral wall “N” logos favoring a cold olive green color and tumbled leather construction. Underfoot, the trail shoe-reminiscent outsole couples with an all-white foam midsole to create a tried-and-proven solution that allows for the top-half to enjoy the spotlight.
