After the 247 F&F Exclusive, New Balance is officially launching their latest silhouette, the 247 Luxe this Saturday, January 7th. There are three colorways available upon release. Do note that this is just the initial release of the 247. Over the next few months, do expect to see more of the 247, done in various uppers, textiles and premium materials. Commonwealth and Sole Academy (BGC) will be releasing the shoe this Saturday via raffle, as there are very limited quantities for the 247 Luxe. The shoe will retail for Php 5,995.
