The NB327 may appear like a relatively simple sneaker, but the Pensole crew clearly prove there’s a lot to work with. These multicoloured mashers use a classic combo of navy nylon on the underlays, and tactile aqua suede on the upper panels. But there’s a lot more going on, with hot red inserted at the lateral ankle panel, and small pops of teal and yellow colouring in the negative space surrounding the oversized lateral N logo. It’s pretty interesting too, as two of its edges are highlighted with squiggly embroidery, perhaps alluding to the innumerable scribbles made during the shoe design process. It may be mostly bare on the medial side, but look closer: there’s rainbow thread used in those vertical stitches.
