Late last month, New Balance and Red Wing Shoes came together for a luxe brown spin on the classic M997 silhouette (the “M” is for Made in USA). Now, we’re providing a striking closer look at the forthcoming collaboration.

Notably, the Red Wing Shoes x New Balance M997RW features high-end soft suede for the majority of the shoe’s upper region, with a slightly firmer cut for the mid-panel and “N” emblem in contrast to the slicker toe box and heel sections. “Tan leather lining, a red heel counter, branding on the heel tab and Red Wing-branded insoles round off” the design of this latest luxury interpretation of the M997, “while an off-white midsole” and red-toned gum outsole dominate the lower region. Throughout the shoe, premium Red Wing leather is used to give the shoe a stunning, well-constructed blend of heritage, street and dressier styling. Altogether, the shoe’s designers aimed for a “tonal palette” of brown, cream and red coloring to bring this new M997 to life.

You can take a closer look at the Red Wing Shoes x New Balance M997RW collaboration above. The sneaker is available on Todd Snyder’s site, while New Balance will begin selling the shoe this Saturday, September 21, with a price tag of $250 USD.
