Bodega and New Balance have continued their ongoing collaboration with the arrival of the third and final joint 997S release from the two labels. The release — dubbed “Better Days” — follows on the back of the previous “No Days Off” and “No Bad Days” takes on the 997S from 2019.

The sneaker continues the patchwork and multi-textural design aesthetic from previous releases, with panels of leather, suede and synthetic materials all featuring across the upper. This approach is also seen in the colors, with hits of purple, orange and yellow featuring alongside a more muted base layer of grey, white and black.

Key detailing on the sneaker includes embroidered 997S branding on the heel, a colorful New Balance patch on the tongue and purple and yellow laces. Rounding out the design is a co-branded Bodega x New Balance footbed.

Get an up-close look at the upcoming collaboration in the gallery above. The Bodega x New Balance 997S “Better Days” will hit the Bodega web store on September 25, 10 a.m. EST in extremely limited quantities.
