New Balance’s latest lifestyle silhouette looks to be setting up its global takeover. The 247 first appeared as a super limited friends and family edition, only accessible to a lucky few, and now we’re all going to get the chance to snag a pair as they announce the upcoming New Balance 247 Luxe.
The new luxe version takes the 247 to a new level of sophistication, blocked out in premium leather on top of a synthetic nubuck bootie that hugs the foot for a secure fit. The generously perforated toe keeps the air flowing and the Revlite sole beneath takes comfort and support to the next level. With the modern design drawn from classic elements of some old favourites, New Balance have reminded us how they’ve earned the reputation for premium construction. The contemporary style can be dressed up or worn casually, so the shoe truly lives up to its moniker – 24/7.
The New Balance 247 Luxe will be available on January 7 from NB stockists and on their website. If you’re in New York, LA, London, Tokyo, Paris, Shanghai or Seoul then there’s a launch event on nearby on the same day, keep your eyes peeled for details.
