New Balance's 997S Gets a General Release
The 997 has long been one of the most-beloved New Balance silhouettes, and now the Boston-based sportswear giants are ready to get behind the shoe's sporty makeover in a big way.
After debuting the 997S with a little help from Ronnie Fieg, Kith, nonnative, and United Arrows, NB are bringing their own colourways to the contemporary 997. Mesh, leather, nubuck and suede are used throughout both pairs, which re-work the classic 997 upper to feature a bootie-style design with turned seams around the toe box. The highlight, however, is undoubtedly the new ENCAP Reveal tooling.
Look for the 997S to hit dealers like asphaltgold this December.
