The 320 was the start of New Balance as we know it. It wasn't just the first sneaker to bear the "N" logo, it was also the best running sneaker of its day—garnering Runner's World's No. 1 ranking for fit and comfort. Also, it's hard to make a blue suede sneaker wack. Seriously, try it. Styling aside, the 320 was a bold statement to the running world that New Balance was a very serious contender.
