New Balance is giving the 997 model a premium finish once again, this time putting on for all the chocolate lovers with a rich brown colorway for the popular silhouette.

Looking good enough to eat, this iteration of the 997 features a top-tier construction from heel to toe. The full-grain pebbled leather upper stands out first and foremost, predominately designed in a strong brown hue with additional accents in tan. Red appears as well via the inner lining, and an off-white midsole adds another color contrast into the mix that continues on with a black outsole. The multicolored combination looks pretty clean overall, whether dressed up or with a more casual street ‘fit. There’s also a metal “N” logo in place as well, very similar to the equally-luxe all-black leather & metal version we spotted earlier this month. An edible treat these are not, but they sure do look like a snack.
