Casablanca x New Balance 327 & 237 Red Monogram Edition

Casablanca and New Balance are continuing their hugely successful collaboration with another set of 327s and 237s. This time around they have delivered a patterned, regal shoe with a green monogram atop a red base. The 237 and 327 are essentially cousins within the New Balance range, sharing many similarities in silhouette. The one large difference is the 327s sole extends up the heel of the shoe while the 237s sole extends slightly out from the shoe’s upper. Get ready to nab these when they hit New Balance on 28th May.
