The New Balance 997 “Brown Leather” continues the trend of using workwear materials on sneakers that has proved a huge success as of late. The pair are part of the label’s premium “Made in the USA” line and are crafted from an aesthetically-pleasing mix of pebbled leather and raw denim.
This pair of 997’s looks to the American cowboys and ranches for inspiration, with the pre-distressed brown leather and raw denim bearing a striking resemblance to classic workwear attire. The uppers are neatly panelled and further accentuated with pops of pink on the inner and clean white laces.
The pair showcase typical New Balance branding throughout in the form of the instantly-recognisable N logo embellished onto each side, a white embroidered typeface logo at the tongue and a black printed logo on the midsole. Underfoot, ENCAP technology ensures optimum comfort and the clean-white sole rounds off the look perfectly.
If you’re liking the look of this workwear inspired New Balance 997 “Brown Leather”, the good news is that it’s available now via select retailers. If you’re looking to secure a pair, we’d suggest moving sooner rather than later as these high-end New Balance silhouettes don’t hang around forever.
