Beginning a new journey within modern footwear design, New Balance present the newest addition to their extensive product range, the 247 Luxe.
Elements of their archive are visible throughout the silhouette, showcasing a storied history of shoes produced over the decades both on British shores, as well as those of the US and Asia. Taking the form of a lifestyle product over a purely performance based shoe, details included pay homage to precursor models that have helped the brand gain momentum in the market over the years. Asymmetrical details on the toe vamp nod to the 1300, the collar strap can be seen on both the predominantly UK made 574 and 576, and an evolved form of the 998 REVlite midsole unit sits underfoot.
The second pack to release after last months successful ‘Luxe’ collection, this new quartet see’s performance orientated materials added to the lifestyle model. A combination of flexible elastic and breathable mesh applied to the toebox area and collar provide a perfect foot and adequate ventilation for the on-the-go wearer. This limitation in materials also greatly reduces weight so you’re not having to worry about comfort throughout the day.
The New Balance 247 Sport Pack releases online and in size? stores on Saturday 11th February.
