I just bought my first pair of New Balance sneakers at the end of August, which I summarized here. Fast-forward to a month later and I am opening a parcel with yet another fresh pair from this brand. This time it was the 327 model, which has been very popular globally.
It is a completely fresh model in the NB lineup introduced this year. The first colorways sold out instantly and were quite hyped. However, as the brand started releasing more options, the shoes are now able to be purchased under retail price, with no major issues.
I have always been skeptical about New Balance, as they weren’t really my style. However, I really like what they did with the 327. It feels cool, sporty and fresh. My favorite part about these shoes is the very wide sole – it’s probably one of the widest models the brand offers. When I look at the toebox from the top, it slightly resembles YEEZY 700v1 aesthetics, but maybe it’s just me.
The shoes fit true to size and supports your feet well. The midsole absorbs quite a lot of impact and the upper, despite little cushioning, doesn’t hurt your ankles. The wide sole makes 327 super stable too. I can already tell these will be my go-to casual sneakers.
