New Balance‘s famed 997 silhouette is gearing up for the Spring/Summer season, seeing as it has been recently covered in a “Mint Julep” color palette.

Like the frosty alcoholic drink that this model has been named after, the minty fresh tonal look takes over the Made In USA upper’s leather and suede composition and follows right down to the partially exaggerated midsole. Laces and New Balance’s “N” insignia also sport the “Mint Julep” look, while “New Balance” branding can be found debossed on both the tongue tabs and heel counters.

Interested fans can purchase the New Balance 997 “Mint Julep” now at select New Balance retailers such as Sneaker Politics.

For more seasonal footwear additions, Salomon and Boris Bidjan Saberi came together on a technical S/Lab slip-on.
