After already getting a preview of both the "Cyclades" and the "Archipelago", now we have the coinciding release details for Ronnie Fieg's latest project with New Balance. Fieg in turn accounts for the first person to collaborate on the Made in USA 997.5.

The "Cyclades" delivery draws inspiration from a trip Fieg took to the Nammos resort in Mykonos, Greece. The colorway points to this particular photograph taken by the designer/shop owner, as the imagery can then also be seen on the insoles of the sneaker. The orange forefoot is representative of the umbrellas, while the beige midfoot symbolizes the soft sand. Finally, the seafoam green detail on the heel mimics the waters of the Aegean Sea. The upper notes construction from pigskin suede, and a white 998 ABZORB midsole unit rests underneath.

Next, the "Archipelago" plays on a similar theme, boasting a blue colorway that is once again a nod to the Aegean Sea. "N" logo branding has been shaded in tropical seafoam, while pigskin suede has also been utilized on the upper of this pair. 3M accents are featured, in addition to a white 998 ABZORB midsole unit.

Each sneaker ultimately arrives in custom packaging, alongside five sets of laces and a pair of KITH x Stance Mykonos Fusion Ankle Socks.

Look for RF's New Balance Mykonos 997.5 collection to release on Friday at KITH locations as well as online. The "Cyclades" will also be made available online at 11 a.m. EST, while the "Archipelago" was released digitally as a Friends and Family Loyalty Program exclusive and will not have a wider online release.
