Inspired by the 1991 silhouette from which it borrows its namesake, the New Balance 997S is a more modern reinterpretation of the classic dressed from head to toe in similarly vibrant schemes popularized on the original. After taking the starring role in two Bodega collaborations — with the first of them rising along the charts of the resell market — these forthcoming offerings are surely not without merit. Hits of baby blues, grassy greens, vibrant pinks, and much more comprise a palette in line with past notables, though armed with enhancements like the layered suspension system. Sock like constructions lend comfort to the aesthetics, bolstered by the mix of characteristically strong suede and familiar mesh. Be sure to grab a detailed look at a few of the upcoming colorways right below and find them hitting NewBalance.com and select retailers on July 13th for a retail of $120.
