UPDATE: The New Balance 997 ‘Coumarin’ has come clean with its popping Floridian palette. The baseball-inspired colourway has stepped into the streets and looks every bit as sweet on the asphalt as it does on the diamond. Hit up the crew at Titolo now to scoop up your own.
The New Balance 997 ‘Coumarin’ is named after a chemical commonly found in grass, which happens to be the very same compound that gives a fresh cut lawn its recognisable scent. This is the second baseball-themed release we’ve seen from NB lately, with this one turning to springtime in Florida for inspiration – drawing on the sights, sounds and smells of a day at the ballpark. It features a mostly grey upper made from plush suede and mesh, accented with pops of blue, green and red. When it comes to quality construction New Balance’s Made in USA program consistently knock it out of the park – so you can rest assured this release’s standard will be top notch.
The New Balance 997 ‘Coumarin’ is available now at select stockists, including online from Politics.
