The ultimate 99x classic just got the modern makeover it deserves: New Balance’s 997H is here! A revolutionary revamp of the iconic 997, the new 997H comes through with a sleeker, contemporary profile that’ll slide seamlessly into any sneakerhead’s rotation. 

Wondering what the ‘H’ stands for? New Balance’s sneaker scientists are keeping their cards close to their chest on that one. That said, based on our extensive research, a solid ‘Hypothesis’ has been reached.

Thankfully, the 997H’s progressive upgrades are less mysterious. Building off the OG’s popular C-CAP/ENCAP-fused cushioning, the updated sole unit makes use of GCEVA and a retooled streamlined outsole profile. The result? A lighter, more responsive feel and a fresh aesthetic that’ll satisfy the palates of everyone from the die-hards to the NB newbies.

Like the other members of the debut 997H pack, this 90s-inspired colourway comes dressed in ‘Sedona Sage’ grey in true NB style. Elsewhere, the upper is livened up with bright neon accents, highlighted with a punchy pink ‘N’ logo and vibrant blue detailing.

What you waiting for? This ‘hypothesis’ is ready to be battle tested. Hit up all leading New Balance retailers now to cop the 997H ‘Sedona Sage/Heather’, alongside three more debut colourways.
