New Balance’s 997s are renowned for their toughness, allowing the subtly rugged shoes to last for years. This Made in USA edition continues that tradition by incorporating SuperFabric material into the suede-dominated upper. Its shades of green are complemented by gray lining and laces, while the Encap midsole provides support and cushioning and the rubber outsole ensures traction. Made in New England with no less than 70% domestic materials.
