New Balance has worked with Red Wing Shoes on a luxe iteration of the heritage M997 model that sports a premium upper made from the shoe brand’s signature leather and suede.

This 997 follows on from the recently released Made in U.S. pair that featured a premium dark brown leather upper. Here, Red Wing leather has been used in place of New Balance’s standard mix of materials and offers a luxurious take on the 997, delivered in a tonal palette of browns, creams and red — the latter color being a subtle nod to the Red Wing partnership.

Buttery soft suede has been used on the majority of the sneaker’s upper, using a slightly heavier cut for the mid-panel and “N” emblem in comparison to the smoother toe box and heel sections. Leather had been used on more detailed sections such as the eyestay and heel support, as well as for the tongue, which features New Balance branding and the “MADE IN USA” stamp. Tan leather lining, a red heel counter, branding on the heel tab and Red Wing-branded insoles round off the premium 997’s design, while an off-white midsole and red-hued gum outsole contrast the upper.

The pair is set to release in limited quantities on September 19 for £259 GBP (approx. $322 USD) via Todd Snyder, and at New Balance on September 21.
