This is mainly because the sneaker has been designed very minimalistic. Besides the big "N" on the sides, the New Balance 327 has only the mudguard and heel cap sewn on the upper. The wide midsole and the conspicuously nubbly outsole give the sneaker the sporty New Balance touch. "Track & Field" - steels the design of the New Balance 327. But to wear this sneaker only for sports would be a waste, wouldn't it? That's what brands like Casablanca and MADNESS thought. Together with New Balance, they were allowed to immortalize their colorway on this silhouette.
