Even though New Balance always wins by going for the more colorful options, as we saw yesterday with the “Purple/Teal” 1530s, the brand’s sweet spot will always fall within the neutral tone zone. The latest proof of that notion is with a new pack of 997s that offer three classic colorways in a sturdy Bison leather finish.
The tumbled leather upper on all three options is the primary focus here, and is offered in a perfect trio of choices: white, black and a standout navy blue complete the set. Another common theme that each colorway shares is the use of an all-white midsole, with the classic crisp color replicated further on the inner mesh lining. The tonal laces on each respective variation completes the monotone look, and with a structure made to combat the last leg of cold weather paired with a hue suitable for spring, this is definitely the perfect transitional shoe for the season at hand.
Pick up the New Balance 997 “Bison” pack right now at select retailers, including SSENSE and Saks Fifth Avenue here in the States or overseas via Billy’s Tokyo, who provided the cool visual imagery below:
