In partnership with New Balance.

So this week’s blog posts will be a week of firsts for sneakers. Yes, this is the first pair of New Balance shoes I’ve ever had, and damn, what a way to kick things off. My Pops was and still very much is a huge fan of the brand, and while I’ve always admired them from afar, I never came around to copping a pair for myself. New Balance threw a party at Nice Kicks to launch the 247 collection not too long ago, and in that short amount of time, this particular color way has pretty much disappeared from any retailer. Basically, if you love them as much as I do, good luck finding them (you won’t). Just when I thought my sneakerhead days were long behind me, I look at my shoe collection and realize that I’ve recreated a monster.

What do you think about the New Balance 247 series? Let me know in the comments below.
