If any imprint knows how quickly a new silhouette can rise to the top, it’s New Balance. The introduction of brand new forms comes as naturally as maintaining retro favorites to New Balance. Recent years have seen the (re)introduction of silhouettes like the 327, 550, and XC-72 which have dominated sneaker headlines since release. For many sneaker lovers, though, finding a lesser-known silhouette is the name of the game. If that’s your bag, look no further than the New Balance 237.
Much like its numerical counterpart, the 327, the New Balance 237 looks to lightweight, retro design ideals which imbue the silhouette with serious versatility. Whether you’re styling up track pants or looking to take the edge off a pair of tailored pants, the New Balance 237 fits the bill. Better still, while other drops steal the headlines, the 237 remains, confusingly, uncovered ground for most sneaker stans.
With a host of fire colorways, we can’t see any reason for this overlooking other than the silhouette’s relative minimalism. While the 327 and 550 earn high-profile collabs, the 237 quietly and faithfully does its thing. We’re here to sing its praises and tell you to stop overlooking the New Balance 237.
