These Two New Balance 997s Feature The Chunky ENCAP Reveal Sole
The New Balance 997 has definitely had the busiest time out of the bunch, making up for lost time with a flurry of new releases like the previous KITH x United Arrows x nonnative collaboration as well as a stripped back remake done by the Tokyo Design Studio. Utilizing the characteristically chunky ENCAP Reveal sole unit, the two newest offerings pair a contemporary use of mesh and suede with its aggressive and futuristic design. Along the rear comes a wide array of bright tones, breaking up a palette comprised entirely of greys or deep reds. White midsoles offer a middling note in tonality, culminating into what may be the most sensible conclusion to an on-going pattern of reconstruction. If you’re interested in either of the two colorways, they’re currently available at retailers like Sneaker Politics for a retail of $120.
