The upcoming J. Crew x New Balance 997 ‘Cortado’ will put a little extra pep in your step, as you head out the door steeped in a caffeinated colourway. For those not fluent in coffee snobbery, a cortado is one part espresso and one part warm milk, without any foam – making it easy to see where the shoe's milky brown palette comes from. If a smooth 997 isn’t motivation enough to be knocking on the doors of your local J. Crew first thing in the morning, they’ve also hit up their pals at Counter Culture Coffee to give the first few punters a bag of their of their own special bean blend.
The piping hot J. Crew x New Balance 997 ‘Cortado’ will be available on March 25 at J. Crew stores.
