With each passing day it becomes more and more clear that the New Balance of old is long gone, with each successive colorway revealing a side to the longstanding Boston label that was once hidden behind their usual grey affairs. Tackling current trends with their own refined ethos, the dad shoe craftsmen are ushering a 997 with Hi-Vis accents subdued only by overarching panels of velvety suedes. Navy overlays and toebox mesh don an ocean blue shade in pleasing excess as darker grey hits sit behind the usual reflective “N” logo. Neon yellows, a staple in the construction worker kit, breath nuance into the many accents across the upper and midsole for what is effectively a subversion of the oft-seen norm. Grab a peek at the latest 997 below and find these rolling out to select retailers right now.
