Available Now // Nautical New Balance 997s in Blue and Hi-Vis
Blue/Bleached Lime Glow
A New New balance?
With every new 997 release from the Boston-based label, we’re seeing a definite shift from their old, mundane ways. Gone are the greys and earthy hues, and in come vibrant remixes, begging the question; are we seeing a new New Balance in 2019?
We sure are.
And while the silhouettes remain timeless, and their materials selection and meticulous construction unadulterated, their color palates suggest we’re seeing a transformation of sorts for the brand — none more obvious than this Hi-Vis nautical-natured pairing. Ocean blues and multiple grey shades make up the majority of the sneaker’s upper, but it’s hard not to notice the perfectly placed pops of Bleached Lime Glow, reminiscent of ocean safety gear. Sans the vibrant hues, the offering wouldn’t be much different from a classic NB release — but it’s the boldness of the brand to utilize such a hue on a time-tested silhouette that’s getting us excited about the future of the brand.
