Aries and New Balance have joined forces once again to rework the classic 327, which arrives in a ’90s-inspired “football terrace” look. The duo has also unveiled an apparel capsule featuring co-branded tracksuits.
“Possibly one of the most fun collaborations to date, I got to create my dream design, glue it to a rocket and watch it fly 60ft into the air. Amazingly the sample withstood about 10 explosions while filming and it’s still intact,” said Sofia Prantera, Aries’ Founder, in a press release. Available in all-black and all-white, the collaborative sneakers are constructed out of 100 percent leather and come with reflective profiles and graphics. For an added touch of flair, the two iterations boast hits of red tones on the lacing system, heel tab and lateral. As for the tracksuits, both colorways – “Black” and “Grey” – sport New Balance and Aries’ signature logos in a silver hue, as well as “Unbalanced” motifs. Additional elements include the small compartment found on the back of the hoodie and the drawstring cuff details on the pants.

Aries x New Balance’s 327 and apparel capsule will drop on October 30 exclusively on Aries’ web store, while the rest of the world will see a later release date of November 6.
