As Casablanca was quick to introduce the New Balance 327, it’s only fitting they be first to offer it. And after months of anticipation, it looks like the French-Moroccan imprint is finally able to bring both their colorways to the spotlight. Though postponed slightly as a result of COVID-19, the release is still slated to hit soon come mid-April with an inspiration that is unquestionably tennis-influenced — a core pillar of the label’s continuous aesthetic. One, which hues much closer to versatility than its accompaniment, paints with dark forest-like greens along its array of luxe suede panels. Underneath, a perforated leather outfits entirely with enlarged “N” logos and eye stay pieces applying atop with neutral white tendency. The palette then bleeds subtly into its alternate as the same green shades take a supporting role adjacent to hits of a much louder orange. Both rounded off with metallic lace tips and relatively minimal medial sides, the set piece does vintage with a small margin of modernity.
