The 997H is a classic New Balance, full stop. It checks all the boxes, clean shape, highly supportive and well built. The Elevated Basics version takes all of these elements and applies premium details to take this highly recognizable sneaker to another level.
The toe, heel and midfoot are touched with tonal brown leather and suede to class up the joint. In order to create some contrast, New Balance adds in stonewashed denim to really seperate these from previous 997s. These are a must have for your rotation, as they’re one of those that will get better with age.
