New Balance 997 Heritage (Burgundy/Grey/Red)
UPDATE: Afew Store has just received delivery of these burgundy bangers.
We won't name names, but as of recent, some of the major players have been reviving some of their back-catalogue classics, missing the mark in some key areas, specifically the overall shape. New Balance, however, has a strong penchant for truthful, period-correct bring-backs. Take for example this 'Heritage' release that just popped up on our radars. It features a long sweeping form from the heel to the toe, accentuated by pleasurable amounts of suede and mesh that flow perfectly with the design. Available for an asking price of $200 USD, some will be turned off by that dollar amount but real heads shouldn't even bat an eyelid! Catch them now at Sneaker Politics.
