New Balance Combines Horween Leather & Premium Nubuck on Its "Red Clay" 997

One of the best American-made sneakers of 2016.

By //Footwear

New Balance and Chicago’s renowned Horween Leather Company aren’t exactly strangers, having teamed up a number of times in the past to drop luxurious, American-made kicks. This past January, for example, the two linked up for a patriotic rendition of the 997 and now they’ve tapped the silhouette yet again for a Fall/Winter 2016 release. This time around the retro runner comes in a combination of red hues, coupling “Red Clay” nubuck with black leather accents, maroon lacing and matching lining. As per usual, New Balance’s ENCAP tech provides the cushioning for the contrasting white midsole while the shoe’s American roots are prominently displayed via the tongue’s embroidery.

Retailing for $230 USD, the “Red Clay” rendition of the New Balance 997 is available now via Sneaker Politics.
