The collaboration between Japanese brand nonnative and New Balance continues. For early January 2012 they announce the release of the collaborative CM997 sneaker. A silhouette that one does not come across too often, it still remains to be one of our favorite. We really have to hand it to nonnative on these – the choice of color and materials is incredible. Unique, premium, unseen before, yet a perfect balance. The outcome is an elegant running shoe, featuring mesh, leather and suede on the upper. Only that hit of royal blue on the outer sole, distracts from the otherwise so clean sneaker.
The nonnative x New Balance CM997 releases on January 7th, 2012.
