New Balance 997 GY2

When the New Balance 997 returned, the sneaker did so in the original grey/white, mesh/suede combination most commonly associated with the silhouette.

In recent weeks, sneaker boutiques have been stocking the shoe again. It's not quite the same this time around though – the New Balance 997GY2, as it's called, wipes out on the grey on the midsole in favor of an all-white treatment. The change is a subtle one, but grey scale NBs are always appreciated by fans of the brand and this one probably won't be any different.

This New Balance 997 style has already landed overseas at stockists like Titolo.
