Inspired by select authors who crafted colorful tales of the Wild West, New Balance presents a new and interesting pack of 997s, titled “Distinct Authors.” The range features a trio of colorways (two of which we already featured), as premium suede and pigskin are the materials of choice throughout the lineup. The black and brown edition showcased above notes leather N branding stitched alongside and a white midsole, just like the other two colorways. Tonal laces then accompany to complete the Made in USA makeup.

You can find the literary-inspired lineup of 997s available now through select New Balance stockists such as Overkill.

Not NYC, not LA.
