Editor’s Notes: New Balance has reissued two OG colorways of arguably its most classic silhouette, the M997. Berlin-based retailer Overkill has both the navy (NV) and gray (GY) variations in stock online. The sneaker, which debuted in 1990, was New Balance’s first shoe to be produced in both the US and UK and has since become a bona fide classic.

The two colorways keep things clean, letting the sneaker’s timeless design speak for itself. Considering how streamlined and popular the design still is today, it’s hard to believe the 997 is almost 30 years old. Check out the imagery above and then shop both styles via the links below.
