Back in August, Ronnie Fieg teased upcoming New Balance 997S collaborations with United Arrows and Nonnative, but it looks like the Kith founder could have even more in the works with the latter brand.
Fieg took to Twitter to tease what appears to be a previously unseen Kith x Nonnative x New Balance 997. Like the aforementioned 997S, this colorway takes notes from Nonnative's New Balance 997.5 "Dune" collaboration from 2011 with a beige and brown pigskin suede upper that also makes use of blue and black.
Despite the teaser, release dates for Fieg's upcoming work with New Balance have not been announced, but these sorts of previews are often an indication of a future drop.
UPDATE (11/09): Fieg has shared another preview of his upcoming collaboration with Nonnative and New Balance which reveals some new details about the shoe. While the sneaker features a mostly unchanged 997 upper, it's been combined with the sole of the new 997S model for an all-new hybrid look. Despite the new teaser, Fieg has yet to reveal the official name or release info for this collab.
UPDATE (11/14): Ronnie Fieg continues to tease the release of his upcoming New Balance collaboration with Nonnative and United Arrows. Today, the Kith founder took to Instagram to announce that customers who have purchased one of his past New Balance collabs have been randomly selected to receive early access to the upcoming 997 inspired by 2011's "Dune" Nonnative x New Balance 997.5. A New Balance 997 inspired by another one of Fieg's favorites—the United Arrows x New Balance 997.5 from 2009—will also be available ahead of its official launch. Customers will have 24 hours to claim their pairs before losing eligibility. Unfortunately, you will not be able to choose the colorway of size you receive. In total, six unique pairs inspired by both colorways will be releasing in the near future with slight design tweaks.
For anyone who does not receive an invoice, Fieg is also holding a photo contest on Instagram for 12 lucky winners to receive one of the six pairs releasing. To enter, you must take a photo in the same style as the one below and tag @kithfootwear. Fieg will be personally selecting his 12 favorites.
