Another day, another beautiful New Balance collaboration. This week, Boston’s oldest shoemakers have teamed up with fashion label COMME des GARÃON for a premium take on the sporty new 997s silhouette in two tonal colorways.
The latest work from fashion and footwear juggernauts COMME des GARÃON and New Balance are already here. Launched without any warning from London-based retailer END. Clothing, CDG’s take on the sleek 997s took many by surprise when they released without warning. Arriving in two simple colorways, the CDG x New Balance 997s is all about luxury. Both shoes feature a predominantly leather upper accentuated by mesh underlays and 3M New Balance logos. The first pair paints the 997’s sporty upper entirely in flat black, while the second mixes a khaki-colored leather with a slightly darker mesh for a more layered look.
COMME des GARÃON’s exclusive take on the New Balance 997 Sport is now available from retailers like London’s END. Clothing, though sizes are moving quickly. The premium iteration of the 997s carries a hefty retail price of $259, though this comes as no surprise thanks to CDG’s involvement. Check out the official images below for a better look, and stay tuned to JustFreshKicks for more info regarding New Balance collaborations.
