Shawn Yue has just taken to Instagram to tease MADNESS‘ final collaboration with New Balance. Based on the new 327 model, the collaboration continues MADNESS’ affinity for militar-inspired design and styling. While the shoe is based off shapes found in ’70s sports shoes, elements of the German military trainer can be found throughout — as seen in the padded collar, round rubber nubs on the outsole and the paneling in the uppers.
The shoe elects for tonal and earthy colorways like green/brown, beige/white and black/gray with “M.D.N.S. Corps” branding on the laces for added contrast. Additional branding can be found at the heel and on the lateral in the form of a woven tag. One of the more special details in this 327 is the omission of a raised “N” logo; this time around, the “N” logo has been made visible via different colored material rather than texture, making for a more flush and streamline silhouette.
While there has yet to be a release date or info on pricing, we do know that this will be the last collab between the two brands. Stay tuned as we will be offering a closer look at the MADNESS x New Balance 327 collaboration in the coming week, and be sure to hit NewBalance.com to check out NB’s latest drops.
