Though the first New Balance 327 sneakers landed in 2020, this series is a figurative love letter to running shoes of the ’70s, which featured bold, unapologetic silhouettes with heaps of colour and flair. Indeed, the retro NB 327 proudly expresses its boldness by plastering the classic ‘N’ logo (originally emphasised by the 320) on the sides of the upper, and it complements this no-holds-barred branding with a mix of materials, including nylon and pigskin suede.
Performance Benefits of the NB 327
The UK-based designer of the New Balance 327 shoes, Charlotte Lee, pulled from multiple different models released during the ’70s (not just the 320), embracing a classic style while bringing the most timeless features into the modern age. One of these models was the SuperComp, a lightweight sneaker made for the road. You can see aspects of the 327’s upper that have been directly influenced by this previous collection. Another model Lee drew inspiration from was the trail-centric 355, whose circular lugs have been incorporated to great effect on the outsole of the NB 327, increasing its ability to grip any surface, on-road or off.
