The 997 series has historically been one of New Balance's most popular. In terms of comfort and aesthetics, the line finds a genuinely impressive balance - even escaping the "Dad Shoes" New Balance stigma.

The latest two editions of the New Balance 997 are no exception. Premium materials and New Balance's famous "Made In USA" quality makes a triumphant return in two colorways of pool blue and grey. Dubbed the New Balance M997CSP, the pool blue variation features a slick blue suede upper accented by a grey mesh toebox and a grey leather tongue.

The other half of the pack was named the New Balance M997DPA and will feature a wilder design, sporting a full grey upper accented by a camouflage patterned toe box. As usual, you can expect the quality of the kicks to be unparalleled in quality of construction and comfort with the ENCAP midsole.

The New Balance M997CSP and M997DPA will retail for $210 and $230, respectively. Expect the pairs to drop soon at local New Balance retailers.
