Forming part of New Balance‘s 2015 spring/summer collection is the latest “Made in USA” M997JNB in “Flint Gray.” Sitting around a classic 997 silhouette, the predominantly dark color palette has added to the slim, minimal aesthetic of the chosen shape. The shoe comprises of a premium, “Flint Gray” Nubuck upper that runs above the circumference of the Encap midsole and around the heel counter. As is standard in most New Balance designs, a contrasting mesh toe-box has been installed for added flex and breathability. The red-stitch branded heel counter and tongue are constructed from a supple, rich leather and are one of many compliments to the overall detailing of the shoe – included amongst this, reflective accents compliment the infamous side emblem and lead through to other red detailing seen throughout and on the midsole and heel-tab.
The New Balance “Made in USA” M997JNB “Flint Gray” can now be purchased from AFEW Store for around $200.
