Editor’s Notes: New Balance tapped fellow Boston-based retailer Concepts to reimagine its classic 327 sneaker with rich colors inspired by the neighboring cranberry bogs in Cape Cod. The rich red colorway is offset with an electric blue rubber sole, suede and nylon upper, and custom co-branding on the tongue and insole.
The hint of green on the molded EVA midsole represents the slice of lime that you would find in a classic local cocktail, the "Cape Codder," better known as a vodka cranberry.
