END. Colabs with New Balance on the 997 'Persian Rug'

Date: December 10 2019

By: Marianna Mukhametzyanova


Once again, END. have merged with New Balance for a killer drop. Earlier this year the two brands collaborated on the 878 model and the 860v2. This time they're reworking the Made in USA 997 silhouette – welcome the 'Persian Rug'!

The shoe is steeped in history, and takes a lot of inspiration from the Middle East. The colour palette, ranging from burgundy, red and beige to a darker navy blue, is referencing the handmade rugs that originated in Persia all the way back in the 5th Century. Similar to the detailing found on these rugs, this 997 remake intricately weaves suedes, leathers and mesh together, signing the shoe off with a 'Made in USA' logo embroidered atop of the tongue.

The kicks will be launching via END. on December 14. Sign up for the raffle on END. Launches now.
