JD Sports Grant Exclusive Access to this Ravishing Ripstop New Balance 327 TrioRelease: 28 July 2021
While the New Balance 327 first entered the sneakersphere as the result of collaboration, it’s matured into a versatile silhouette that is particularly adept at showcasing different materials and colours. And some of these combos are a little bit more special than others, such as this new 327 trio that’s been redone in ripstop nylon – and is exclusive to JD Sports.
For those who have been following the 327 since its induction in early 2020, the usage of ripstop is yet another effective material swap in the seemingly never-ending swatch book. In fact, this fabric plays well into the 1970s moodboard that the 327 draws upon, as nylon is the prevailing material used on running shoes of the era. In fact, a number of other throwback cues are retained on these three colourways, such as the suede overlays on the elongated toe wrap, the eyestays, and heel counter. The same goes for the knobbly rubber outsole with its unique extended heel roll.
What’s more contemporary is the colour palette NB have picked out for each of these 327s. Adherence to their quintessential shades of grey and navy continues here, but the vibrant addition of orange, pale blue, and red across the trio keeps things fresh. As does the chewy gum rubber outsole on the grey/black/orange edition.
All three of these 327s can only be copped at JD Sports, so head on down to their brick-and-mortar locations, or shop 24/7 from their online store now!
