The fit of the New Balance 247 Classic is basically the same as the other shoe model from the 247 collection. It is offered in both men’s and women’s sizing. 

With a low-top profile, the NB 247 Classic allows the foot as well as the ankle to move freely. It has a bootie structure that offers support. Also, it has a lacing system that can be adjusted to tighten the fit. 

New Balance kept a simple yet classic look for the 247 Classic. A slim, sleek, and stylish look of the shoe that combines form and function that is great for someone who is constantly moving. It is a versatile pair of sneaker that is perfect for any combination of a casual outfit.

The perfect shoe whether for training in the gym, working, traveling, or for a day-to-day routine. For the women’s shoe, they can look good with a pair of leggings, yoga pants, or even a pair of shorts.

How the New Balance 247 Classic fits perfectly and gives a comforting hug to the foot is what most people gush about the shoe. They really loved how the shoe fits and how comfortable it is when they were wearing them. The stylish look of the shoe was also a huge plus for the buyers since they loved its simple yet classic look.

The New Balance 247 Collection is a brand new silhouette from the brand. It has only been a few months since it was first released but it already has gotten quite some recognition in the sneaker world. Throughout its very young yet rather successful lifetime, the brand has already made a few changes to the popular silhouette, giving the people more stylish options to choose from.

Although the stylish New Balance 247 is a new silhouette, it was designed with its origin drawn from three of the brand’s most iconic retro models: M1300JP for the forefoot throat pattern, original 1993 NB998 for the grey nubuck, and the NB576 for the mesh toe box inspiration. The shoe had a limited edition release to only 247 pairs.

By December 2016, the New Balance 247 “Friends & Family” Pack came out. The pack was also in a limited edition release of 247 pairs. This premium version of the shoe was released in a grey and dark teal colorway. But the pack is now hard to find since it quickly got sold out.

The New Balance 247 Luxe Pack came out next with a trio of brand new colorways. The shoe features premium leather and neoprene upper. The new set of colorways of the Luxe Pack comes in a tonal tan, white, and black.

Following the 247 Luxe is the New Balance 247 Sport which was released in four colorways of orange, olive, black, and black & white. The shoe showcases an engineered mesh upper, a neoprene sock construction, and a reflective collar strap, rubber tongue, and the trademark “N” logo of the shoe. The shoe also has drawn some additional inspirations for its design from 1300 for the toe vamp, the 574 and 576 for the collar strap and the 998 for the midsole.

The New Balance 247 Classic is the New Balance 247’s new face. The shoe is offered in a classic colorway of black, white, and gray and it was released for both men and women. The Classic is the third variation of the 247 Collection following the 247 Luxe and the 247 Sport. For the release of the 247 Classic, New Balance went back to its roots for the model’s colorway set inspired by the traditional shades that the brand is known for.

  • A REVLite midsole cushioning is used.
  • Includes an integrated neoprene sock as an additional touch to the shoe.
  • A neoprene collar and tongue can be observed.
  • A welded “N” logo on the quarter panel alongside a woven label on the tongue.
  • The New Balance 247 Classic Women’s collection was the first women’s specific collection from the 247 line and was dropped on March 4th, nicely coinciding with the “International Women’s Day”.
  • A contrasting trademark “N” logo New Balance branding on the men’s shoe while a tonal 3M “N” logo on the women’s shoe.
  • Metallic overlays that are inspired by gem colors are also observed on the women’s version of the shoe.
