UPDATE: Care of the boys at Up There Store, we've got ourselves some additional pics of the newly-reintroduced 997.5 that we have to share. Just look at that shape! You could poke an eye out with that sharply pointed toe. Up There will be dropping their pairs on April 30th also, both in-store and through their online store.
We've always been down for the New Balance 997's half-point upgrade. The 997.5 sports all the style sensibilities that made the 997 such a hit, but revises the midsole with the inclusion of ABZORB technology. Here we find the shoe in classic grey with darker accents across the toe box and tongue, and lighter tones on the midsole.
The New Balance 997.5 in 'Tonal Grey' will be available on April 30 from Above the Clouds' online store.
