The New Balance 997 is one of the American company’s flagship sportswear models. In a previous life, it was the pinnacle of running footwear, but it now sits comfortably as an understated casual sneaker.
This browned-out edition is an example of this, choosing tonal shades across its entirely suede upper. Hints of grey nod to its OG livery, until the clay-like tongue and ankle panel throw a fresh breath of contrast. Down below, the two-toned grey and white ENCAP midsole is always a nice touch.
Out now from retailers like Afew.
