The brand joins the knit sneaker bandwagon with the New Balance 247 Knit.
The updated version will sport a knitted upper as well as a redesigned logo on its tongue. Unlike its predecessors, the knitted version will feature the numbers “247” in white, in the middle of its logo.
The shoes will come in a variety of colors such as red, purple and navy blue. Other colors available include a gray/black and red/black reiteration (images below).
The 247 line features the brand’s iconic REVlite midsole. According to New Balance, the REVlite midsole is said to be 30% lighter than usual, but just as resistant.
The sneaker’s slim silhouette is said to provide wearers with a snug, bootie-like fit. The shoes will also come outfitted with a heel tag for easy removal.
The shoes are now available in New Balance stores in Singapore. It retails at S$149 a pair.
