For LA: New Balance 997

Date: December 15 2019

Apparently, this is a Los Angeles–themed New Balance 997 to coincide with a Kawhi Leonard–associated Clippers colourway. Regardless of the inspiration source, it’s an interesting package from NB.

Made in USA, this luxe runner-turned-street-stalker is made from deep black suede, with the tasteful addition of perforations on the toe box. The blue tongue embroidery looks particularly nice against the black, and the midfoot N logos are red and blue. They also swap places from foot to foot, for a subtle asymmetric effect. The black ENCAP carrier is also a rare sight.

Out now directly from New Balance.
