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.
