As recreational running established widespread popularity in the 1970s, the benchmark for running footwear shifted from mere existence to performance. While the era’s designs would be considered simple by today’s standards, the decade stands out as the moment when running shoes truly came into their own. The 327 sheds new light on the ‘70s as a time of innovation by boldly reshaping classic design elements with a thoroughly contemporary outlook. With an angular reworking of the tried-and-true wedge silhouette, outsize, asymmetrically applied ‘N’ branding, and wraparound, trail-inspired lug outsole, the 327 provides nothing less than a complete reimagination of our running heritage.
Meets New Balance’s green leaf standard: upper is made of 50% or more recycled content, leather that supports more responsible manufacturing through the Leather Working Group, and/or preferred manmade cellulose, and at least one midsole/outsole material contains a minimum of 3% bio-based or 5% recycled content.
