The 997S is one of New Balance’s modern success stories, skilfully connecting the heritage 997 silhouette to a modern ENCAP sole unit. It usually appears in Asian-made format, but whenever a Made in USA version is announced – pay attention.
This upcoming colourway can’t be described by just one colour: there are at least seven. Unlike most multicoloured sneakers that seem to barf colours with abandon, the execution here is quite balanced. The smooth suede construction and mesh toebox is classic NB.
Keep an eye out on Foot Locker’s site for an imminent drop.
