We thought the upcoming Bodega collab was a fresh set of kicks, but the latest colorway for New Balance’s fan-favorite 997 model is now decked out in a “Mint Julep” hue that really deserves a toast.



Named after the classic frozen alcoholic drink that’s always a big hit during spring and summer nights, this mint-themed hue is completely tonal throughout the silhouette. The suede upper looks especially dope decked out in the colorway, and paired with the tumbled leather heel counter and ENCAP midsole donning a matching tone, we can’t think of a better shoe that represents the season at hand quite like this iteration. Bottoms up!
