This is a new feature that I’m adding since Should You Buy To Flip is getting harder to do, and seems to be fading away except on shoes that we all know are going to do well. Collect This falls under the Should You Buy To Flip banner, but is a bit different as my standards for this are completely subjective and based on personal aesthetics. I’m also taking the time to look for shoes that have sold out to reinforce my suggestions that you should take the time to look into a particular shoe. The first shoe in the Collect This feature is the New Balance 247

New Balance has begun to streamline the materials and panels on their footwear. This is creating a lighter option. I actually had to stop wearing NB due to the thickness of the ENCAP soles and elevated heel height. The shoes were forcing my toes into the toebox of the shoe and causing my knees to hurt. The revision of the outsole with the Revlite Cushioning Tech gives a supportive but cushioned ride and it doesn’t have such a large heel to toe drop. The sock lite fit is on trend and the materials and colorways in the series are dope. Details of the shoe are below and more pics. You can hit Kith, by using the sourcelink, but if they are sold out the link above to eBay gives you a few options. Which one is your style? Beige is right up my alley.
