Two fashion powerhouses are teaming up with a collaboration that blends two closet staples. Levi Strauss is known worldwide for Levi’s denim jeans and clothing. The company has a rich brand history dating back to 1853 and has since been a staple in the denim and fashion industries. New Balance has made its mark in the sneaker industry since 1906 and has also expanded to clothing and accessories. The two brands have partnered earlier this year with the Levi’s x New Balance 1300, which was released in April. They’re teaming up again with their Fall/Winter 2020 collection with a focus on the 327, an iconic New Balance running shoe of the 1970s.
A modern classic with a denim twist
Touted as the ultimate leisure shoe, the 327 has had countless collaborations and special editions in the past. Brands like Public School NY, Casablanca, STAUD, and Aries have all worked with New Balance. Levi’s is bringing their signature denim to these classic kicks with various colorways
The 327 is available in “Navy/Indigo/White” and “Navy/White/Grey” in men’s sizing and “Grey/Sky Blue/White” in women’s sizing. The shoe sports New Balance’s iconic oversized N logo in leather on the outer uppers. This signature element of the brand gives the shoe a bold and iconic look. Levi’s signature red tab is also present on the sneaker’s upper along the New Balance logo. Each shoe in the collection features Levi’s denim on the upper and white leather on the midsole. All styles also have a ‘70s-style waffle sole, which gives you comfort, grip, and stability. The split design of these 327’s will give your outfit that extra kick of style.
The latest capsule also includes a reversible padded trucker jacket, each side representing a different brand. The Levi’s side features denim patchwork and the New Balance side features the giant logo. The two brands also have a vintage advertising-inspired graphic t-shirt. Buy Here
