A few weeks back, we were gifted by New Balance their latest silhouette, the 247. Although the Friends & Family silhouette won’t be available for sale, we’re pleased to see the Luxe Pack as the official commercial release this 2017.
Designed with the modern, urban lifestyle in mind, classic New Balance quality and craftsmanship is fused with modern performance, the New Balance 247 Luxe looks to be the next big thing in the sneaker world. With retailers and tastemakers giving their seal of approval, we can’t wait to see these drop this weekend.
The first release, the 247 Luxe, will be available in three colorways at their global retail network beginning January 7 for Php 5,995. In the Philippines, Commonwealth and Sole Academy will be releasing a very limited quantity for this pack.
The New Balance 247 offers a new look, feel and fit, but draws inspiration from iconic New Balance models to remain grounded in the brand DNA. New Balance took inspiration from three of their iconic silhouettes – the 1300 (assymetric detail on the toe vamp), 574/576 (collar strap), and the 998 (midsole, although using REVlite versus the Abzorb).
“The Luxe pack is what New Balance does best – premium, quality materials and craftsmanship in combination with sophisticated styling and superior comfort,” said Brian Lynn, Senior Product Manager, Global Lifestyle. “Their versatility means they look just as good in a more formal setting as they do in a casual one – the perfect 24/7 companion.”
The New Balance 247 is all about versatility and for that always-on-the-go lifestyle. To celebrate the shoe’s release, New Balance will be hosting seven major events across the globe this Saturday, January 7 in time for its release. Make sure to follow the local release as well.
