Channelling the minimal vibes of their recent 574 collaboration, Comme des Garçons and New Balance have now taken to the contemporary 997S, coming through with fuss-free ‘Black’ and ‘Brown’ colourways.
Adopting tonal palettes, the uppers feature a leather/suede construction with mesh underlays and 3M accents on the signature ‘N’ midfoot logo. Down below, a combination of ENCAP REVEAL and ABZORB technology brings the cushiness, while a traction-blessed rubber outsole encourages all-day wear and practicality – Junya Watanabe wouldn’t want it any other way.
The Comme des Garçons x New Balance 997S is available now from END. Clothing for $259.
