Commonwealth Philippines brings in the holiday cheer as they just announced the availability of the New Balance x Aries 327 Collab at their Rockwell branch.
It’s a very classy pair, perfect for those athleisure outfits we all love. Its “like a boss” feel can make it your office sneaker as well. The sneaker comes in all-white and all-black–both sporting leather uppers and feature reflective detailing and a gum-colored outsole. Its design takes inspiration from early ’90s football terrace design, balancing sports and sophistication.
Together with the sneakers, the collaboration also came up with a matching tracksuit, although we have yet to receive word on the local availability of the apparel.
The 327 is dubbed as the ultimate leisure shoe, taking inspiration from three of their 70s vintage models: the 320 (1976), 355 (1977), and SuperComp (1977). Considering that it is based from a running shoe, it should be able to accompany you for long trips to the mall and what-not.
The 327 was launched earlier this year by New Balance in a collaboration with French brand, Casablanca. During the latter part of the year, it had a collaboration with Levis, along with a few mainstream GR pairs that look simple yet very cop-worthy.
In case you are wondering, Aries is a London-based brand founded by streetwear legends Sofia Prantera and Fergus Purcell (better known as Fergadelic) that prides itself at its eclectic mix of high fashion and streetwear.
