Legendary sneaker designer Steven Smith successfully created the New Balance 997 signature silhouette in 1991 with an emphasis on the intersection of style, technology and comfort. In 2019, this ethos remains true with the New Balance 997 Sport. Bridging the gap between old and new, this innovative iteration of the 997 family offers a fresh take on the classic silhouette with its modernized and streamlined approach, resulting in an ideal blend of lifestyle and performance.

The 997 Sport is the most stable version of this silhouette to date, touting new Encap Reveal Technology paired with Abzorb, which is New Balance’s top of the line foam material used for cushioning. Using a new layered suspension system, the sole combines old and new technologies to make the most comfortable 997 yet. The shoe features premium materials and booty construction, providing a clean, stylistic update. And the upper pays homage to the original 997 incorporating a slimmed down, contemporary look for more everyday use.

Check out the shoe in the images above, which honor New Balance’s “Runs In the Family” campaign, a nod to its family-owned roots. The 997S is available now at all New Balance stores and stockists for $199.99 USD. Head over to the brand’s website to cop the newest member of the 997 family.
