New Balance has released a brand new iteration to a sneaker they debuted right at the end of 2016. Dubbed the “247,” the label states that this number reflects our contemporary culture’s 24/7 fast paced lifestyle. The New Balance 247 draws its design inspiration from a variety of materials and influences used in past silhouette’s like the classic 548, 998, 1300. However, the 247 operates more in the space of luxe-style footwear with its full-grain leather upper, synthetic nubuck heel counter and its REV-lite sole. Those looking to cop, the New Balance 247 is set to release on January 7 at select New Balance retailers at a price-point of $130 USD/€125 EUR.
