Adding to the upcoming Year of the Pig lunar new year celebration, New Balance joins in with clean pair of 997’s. Keeping tones minimal, the upper consists of red suede with a dash of white, black and gold embellishment. Think New Years Eve red envelope, but for your feet. To further identify its correlation with the fifteen day holiday, the sockliner and tongue feature the ubiquitous octagon. Expect a release in the upcoming weeks.
