The sneaker features tonal greys on its upper, with light grey used on the suede and mesh around the toe and a darker shade on the lace and side panels. This is contrasted against different “Aqua” tones across the shoe’s heel and tongue. Finally, the 997 is finished with white detailing — including the distinctive “N” logo — and an all-white midsole and outsole.
New Balance’s grey and “Aqua” 997s are available now from retailers including Oneness287, with retail set at $280 USD. In other New Balance news, 400 pairs of the brand’s sneakers were recently anonymously gifted to an elementary school in North Carolina.
