New Balance 997 Tokyo Design Studio

New Balance Tokyo Design Studio has revealed its latest project with a new twist on the 997 Sport. The shoe features a minimalist nubuck upper with gusseted tongue construction, a pebbled leather collar strap, and sheep skin lining. What really makes the shoe stand out is the color blocking of the Encap Reveal and Abzorb elements that not only offer a functional purpose with its cushioning platform, but adds a bold contrast against the pared-back upper. 

Available February 9th.
