New Balance continues the rollout of its 997H silhouette, this time coming in three bold iterations – “Incense/Moroccan Tile,” “Blue/Varsity Orange” and “Rifle Green/Sulphur Yellow.” The 997H is a modern adaptation of the classic 997, reimaging the ’90s lifestyle sneaker with performance-friendly textiles.

Coming in a mix of suede, mesh and leather materials, the 997H models come in contrasting upper panels lined with Cordura fabric. Sewn at the top of the tongue is a diamond-shaped patch, etched with “New Balance” branding, complemented with round laces below. The collars come in breathable mesh fabric, fine grain leather near the top section of the lace cage, followed by premium nubuck along the sidewalls and toe box. Other details like the suede heel panel and speckle patterns gracing the soft foam midsole round up the vibrantly colored sneakers.

The New Balance 997H “Incense/Moroccan Tile,” “Blue/Varsity Orange” and “Rifle Green/Sulphur Yellow” are currently available at newbalance.com for $90 USD.

Elsewhere, AriZona Ice Tea & adidas’ 99-Cent Sneakers will be re-releasing for $200 USD.
