You’re familiar with the sneakerhead stock comedy character, guy who puts plastic bags on his shoes in the rain? This shoe is the exact opposite. This is a shoe for wearing every day, for taking outside, for doing actual stuff in. Wear it in the rain; get dirt on it. A sleek update of the classic 997 silhouette, the 997S features a mesh upper outfitted with leather and distressed suede overlays, signature, New Balance dual ABZORB and ENCAP cushioning, a dimple embossed neoprene bootie construction, X-Pac laminate heel counter and wavy mudguard design inspired by the 660, the 997S isn’t made for just sitting around.
The Bodega x New Balance 997S “No Days Off” will launch on the 4th of April exclusive to the NTWRK app. Then on the 6th of April, the sneaker will hit bdgastore.com, Bodega in Boston and Bodega Los Angeles for $160.
