Whoolrich x New Balance 997

by Henrik Buzzi

Teaming up to retool the Made in US 997 silhouette, New Balance and Woolrich come together to demonstrate the power of their combined attention to detail. Both renowned in their own right as purveyors of the finest quality items, the collaborative 997 arrives in a contemporary gradation of greys, accented with flashes of blue and coral for depth.

In a masterful combination of New Balance’s deft eye for an essential sneaker silhouette and Woolrich’s inimitable outdoor expertise, the 997 is updated with flashes of Woolrich’s premium performance-wool on the toe-box, vamp, and tongue. This is met with New Balance’s signature ENCAP midsole technology for comfort. The remainder of the upper is built in a luxe suede and breathable mesh for a year-round finish. Alongside the sneaker release, a limited edition Woolrich woollen blanket will be available, adding a unique twist to a well-conceived partnership. The New Balance x Woolrich Made in the US 997 will release at selected retailers such as  END. on October 28.
