new balance 997 17

What better way to start the new year, than with one of the most anticipated releases from New Balance for 2014. The New Balance M997GY is back and from the looks of the silhouette in these images, it’s coming back strong. Like the stellar NB 990 retro of last year, this 997 is dressed beautifully and doesn’t look to disappoint in the ‘shape’ department. The first 997 release will spring out the vault in the original, what I like to call, “new balance tonal grey”. In the mix is NB’s premium suede, mesh, pebbled leather to the tongue, ankle collar, and toe-box overlay. A hint of reflective 3M on the NB logo finishes the shoe which sits atop the detailed 997 ENCAP. Simple, beautiful, “Made In The USA” and a MUST own for any NB fan or shoe fan in general. If you appreciate the workmanship from New Balance’s artisans, or any shoe artisan for the matter, don’t miss out on this release. If this CW doesn’t suit you, just wait for the black or navy colorways…

So where can you grab this pair? Check out Up There Store which will release them first at 11am in-store on January 18th. After that, any remaining pairs will go up to the online store at 12pm. Good luck to anyone heading out there to grab a pair and to those waiting to see if their size makes it online. No other details are available at the moment, including when they will release at other stockist or here in the USA. Until that INFO trickles down, enjoy the rest of the images…

    I don’t know how any other New Balance GR or collab can outdo this release in 2014. These are outstanding and I hope they’re not as scarce as the 990GYs were.

    I can’t even describe how good it feels to see those beauties!!! No one…and I mean absolutely no one can execute a Classic like NB. The M1300JP,
    M990GY (30th Anniversary Edition), M576NGA and now the 997!!!!
