Continuing the trend of updating their classics in to modern street wear styles, New Balance's 997 Sport in black and pink is one of their best releases this year. Not shying away from their usage of Cordura fabric on uppers, the 997 Sport blends the durable fabric with suede, mesh, and nubuck panels all in black offset by a pink sockiner and heel inserts. It all sits atop a sturdy ENCAP Reveal midsole and Absorb heel with New Balance's cheeky "Motion Control Device" tag embedded in to the footbed, providing a very stable wear.

As an update to the 1990's cult favorite New Balance 997, the new 997H blends a modern lifestyle sneaker silhouette with elements of a trail sneaker. The uppers are made primarily from rugged Cordura fabric, giving them longevity and making them more resistant to scuff, tears, and even water than most sneakers. Two-tone laces and a back pull loop add more outdoor flair to this otherwise street-ready sneaker. To finish things off, a soft foam midsole sits atop the rubber outsole. The whole package wraps up in to a sneaker that is ideal for wear when the city streets are a bit damp and dirty or for a walk out on the trail but you still want the comfort and look of a classic New Balance sneaker.
Inspired by the v1, the updated 247 from New Balance offers comfort and support along with sporty style. Each pair features the innovative REVlite midsole for added comfort, premium responsiveness and durability, and 30% less weight. A textured sole provides both flex and traction, and a leather strip in the breathable upper allows for greater lockdown and stability. Available here in a new black colorway with Munsell white accents, it's a versatile shoe that's ideal for every day, around-the-town wear.
Fit: Runs a Little Large / Size Down If In Doubt
Originally introduced in 1991, the 997 is one of New Balance's most iconic silhouettes, and the last penned by designer Steven Smith. This new 997 Bison pack reinvents the classic runner. The upper is made from full bison leather in black or white, giving it a more elegant look, while signature Encap cushioning provides comfort and support. It's finished with an EVA foam midsole and a rubber outsole, and as part of the company's Made in USA line, is a premium offering made from at least 70% domestic components that represents the pinnacle of New Balance's line.
