New Balance introduces their 997.5 model ($210) to their extensive collection. The 997.5 takes parts from both the 997 and 998 models, and seamlessly combines them into one. The upper mimics the 997 runner, while the ABZORB midsole is taken directly from the 998 silhouette. Suede construction is contrasted with mesh at the toe box, as well as custom pebbled leather at the tongue and heel counter. Purchase your pair online and in-store.
