Its darkest colorway to date.

New Balance‘s 327 is the perfect canvas for color — just check out the patterned Casablanca pair, “Pink Paradise” iteration, or Concepts’ version if you need reminding — but every now and then, New Balance leans towards its dark side for a more ominous colorway, such as this blacked-out look.

While the 327 has appeared in triple black before, upon reflection we see that the pair was more of a dark gray as opposed to the no-fooling-around blacked-out finish on the 327 you see above. Here, a synthetic textile has been used for the base of the shoe’s upper, essentially forming its now-signature shape before lashings of suede and leather decorate the upper.

Suede has been added for structural integrity, hitting up the toe box, eyestay, vamp, and heel sections, while black leather has been used to mark out the “N” emblem that graces the mid-panel. A nylon tongue stamped with tonal “NB” branding sits beneath a set of flat black laces, while a complementing liner and a blacked-out rubber waffle sole unit round out the pair.

The New Balance 327 in black can be seen above and purchased from stockists such as HBX now for just $106 USD.
