The New Balance 997 is on a roll this year. Following high profile releases from various collaborators and the brand itself, the classic 997 recently rolled out in two exciting new premium colorways, constructed from beautiful materials.

Last time we checked in with the New Balance 997 OG, the silhouette was ready to launch in an ultra-luxurious new look thanks to a clean Horween leather upgrade. Now, the same beloved silhouette is back with another high-quality take to match the prowess of Horween’s leather pair, thanks to a set of aluminum N logos on either side. The upper of this new color scheme is constructed from premium black leathers and adds suede underlays for a slight change in tone and texture. The black metallic N logos adorning either side are outlined by more plated metal, this time in a bronze color to offset the main black piece.


New Balance’s latest luxurious iteration of the classic 997, which boasts a black tumbled leather upper and metal N logos, is now available from retailers like SneakersNStuff. The high production quality of this pair helps dictate the $300 price tag, as well as the short list of third party retailers. Check out the official images below for a better look, and stay tuned to JustFreshKicks for more New Balance release news.
