New Balance‘s 997S is getting ready for the warmer days ahead with a vibrant multicolor makeup. A modernized take on the classic 997, the 997S was made to present a look that toes the line between sport and lifestyle. Now, it’s leaning even further into that versatile ethos with this bold and colorful style.
Built from various mesh and suede panels, the upper wastes no space in putting forth a plethora of vivid hues. The toebox uses a retro yellow, the midfoot and tongue call upon a crisp and cool green, the heel and midfoot N equip a bold blue and the mudguard chooses an appealing orange, complete with extra New Balance branding. Quarter panels opt for an ever-so-soft grey suede, with heel pieces adding in a touch of tan. Plastic embellishments switch between between grey and more orange, while orange/green tongue branding and a large white heel piece finalize the top half’s style.
Down below a thick ENCAP midsole equips white and grey tones, with a large blue plastic piece on the heel proffering an ABZORB hit for a nod to the cushioning tech. Gum outsoles bring a little classic flair to the table, and an orange “Motion Control Device” hit on the midfoot finalizes the stylings.
The New Balance 997S “Multicolor” is available now at retailers like Sneaker Politics, and is priced at a palatable $110 USD.
