The New Balance 997 is Fresher than Ever in 'Mint Julep'

Date: March 22 2019

By: Boon Mark Souphanh


The New Balance Made in USA line calls on inspiration from the deep south for its latest 997 colourway. Based on one of the region’s most popular alcoholic cocktails — Mint Julep — the premium textile upper is dressed in a pastel green/blue designed to mimic the frosty beverage’s ice, sugar and mint.

The super-fresh scheme isn’t just limited to the famed ‘N’ logo upper, with the ENCAP-infused sole unit also getting dipped for an all-over look that breaks the Made in USA status quo.

Pairs are available now from select New Balance retailers like Sneaker Politics.
