Let’s be honest, there’s always some room to be made for a fresh pair of neutral kicks, especially when it comes to comfortable lifestyle New balance shoes. Thankfully Japan’s BEAUTY & YOUTH has teamed alongside the sportswear brand to manufacture a simple-yet-stunning bespoke 327 “Olive” colorway to help you transition your wardrobe into the Spring/Summer season.
The casual sneaker — which is traditionally created with a nylon upper — has been modified with a mostly canvas build. This material is dialed to a muted beige hue, and comes offset with seasonally-friendly “Olive” accents that show up on the suede overlays, laces, and tongue tabs. Neutral tones of white and gray also get some playing time here, the former of which fills in the lateral side N letters while the latter drapes over the interior lining. Midsoles are bereft of any coloring, and the rough-textured treading is completely swamped in a matte gray hue.
For those who missed out on the initial Casablanca x New Balance 327 colorways, this can certainly be a worthy consolation prize.
If interested, the UNITED ARROWS online store has them available for pre-order right now. Retail price is set for ¥10,890 (approx. $100 USD).
Elsewhere in the world of sneakers, New Balance recently dropped its Made in the UK 577 with a patriotic color scheme.
