The vibrant collaboration with Aimé Leon Dore is far from New Balance’s only colorful take on the 997 range as of late, as the brand has recently released the footwear in a punchy magenta and navy combination. Balanced out with clean white leather overlays, the rich shades in the new “Moroccan Tile” colorway provide a vivid color scheme throughout the classic style.
This edition of the 997S features dark blue mesh and white leather paneling on the upper. The deep purple magenta hue coats several elements of the shoe, including the back heel, subtle details on the tongue logo and the reflective “N” patch at the quarter. Navy returns as a colorblocked element on the outsole, contrasting against the black base. New Balance’s signature ENCAP technology in its traditional beige shade is equipped at the midsole to finish off the sneaker.
