New Balance's M997 has received nothing short of universal critical acclaim since crawling its way out of New Balance's extensive archives. The latest iteration of the 997 is included in New Balance's "Authors" Pack, and is possibly the most premium variation yet since its rebirth. The M997PR features a full suede and leather upper, devoid of any mesh or plastic panelling, as seen on the two OG makeups released earlier this year. Black suede comprises the majority of the upper, while the toe box features a lovely perforation detail. Rich brown leather acts as the contrast to the black, located on the forefoot overlay, "N" branding, upper side panels, and tongue. The sharp ENCAP midsole is presented in white with a beige stripe detail located on the medial side. The heel clip and rear outsole component display a nice Terracotta accent color, really wrapping together the entirety of this color makeup. The finishing detail is New Balance branding presented in the "Authors" Pack font on the insole. The New Balance M997PR - "Authors" Pack is available now at Kith Manhattan and online at KithNYC.com.
