Flexibility and support

Found in the upper of the New Balance 247 Sport is an engineered mesh that is made of different layers. The multi-layer upper is designed to provide the right fusion of flexibility and support. It offers stiffness and flexibility in the right areas to seamlessly hold and support the user without being restrictive in any way.

Durable midfoot hold of New Balance 247 Sport

The second major feature in the shoe is the pronounced midfoot strap that also houses the very obvious “N” logo of New Balance. More than a very apparent aesthetic reference to the company, it also functions as a very dependable and durable midfoot hold.

History of New Balance 247 Sport 

The New Balance 247 Sport was released in 2017 and is part of the 247 Collection which features the brand’s iconic shoe styling with modern innovations.

To pay tribute to the old New Balance running models, the 247 Sport has the iconic reflective New Balance logo, collar strap, and circular rubber logo placed on the tongue. 

Although it did not get the same kind of all-out introduction the first 247 model was given, this shoe still, quickly and easily, caught the fancy of more than a good portion of sneaker-loving people.
