A minimalist refresh for the classic 90s runner.

New Balance silhouettes have had somewhat of a resurgence in recent years as the normcore and dad sneaker trend blew up in 2018. However, unlike New Balance’s chunkier 90s runners, the new MS997, created by New Balance’s Tokyo Design Studio, adopts a fresh, minimalist design language upon a layered chunky sole.

Initially releasing in two colorways, one in Grey and the other in Black, you can find a mix of tonal soft leather and buttery suede accented by tumbled leather detailing. The metallic contrasting eyelets and New Balance branding, debossed logo on the tongue tab, leather insoles and a muted color-blocked sole set off the tonal hues for this premium-feel updated runner.

You can expect both colorways to drop in limited numbers on February 9 at Dover Street Market Singapore, EXI.T Hong Kong, Upthere Store and select NB stockist worldwide, retailing for $150 USD (£115 GBP).
