New Balance’s well-received 247 shoe – you know: breathable mesh and a cool tongue, a lightweight and stable RevLite sole, a big reflective ‘N’ on the side – gets a summery pastel update with the “Breathe” pack.
Coming in colourways called things like Sherbet, Black, Mint Cream, Navy, White, and Grey/Blue, the best of the bunch is an apparent “women’s-only” Cosmic Sky – a kinda lilac colour that just won’t quit and is definitely worth sizing up and crossing the gender footwear divide for.
The Mint Green colourway is also a very wearable look: fresh and neutral, fit for jeans or a nice tanned leg. I reckon they’d look nice a lil’ bit scuffed too, meaning you doubly won’t have to worry about wearing them to the park when someone says “Shall I go buy a football?” You’re ready to go. You’re ready to fucking ping one. Ping it. Ping it long and true. Straight as an arrow. In your lightweight Mint Green colourway New Balance 247 “Breathe” shoes.
You’ll be the man.
