If New Balance's 997 silhouette wasn't premium enough already, the American heritage brand is making sure that there's no debate with the release of its latest "Red Clay" edition of the sneaker.

Featuring an upper composed of premium nubuck and Horween leather, a clay-colored red pervades the majority of the upper, interrupted only by black Horween leather and slight hits of violet. Sneaker material enthusiasts will be pleased to also discover the pair offers a perforated leather toebox over the typical mesh, adding to the premium feel of this particular release. The pair is complete with a white ENCAP midsole, and red/violet outsole.

The New Balance M997DTAG "Red Clay" is now available at retailers such as Sneaker Politics for a retail price of $230 USD.
