Red Wing Brings Luxurious Leather To The New Balance M997 Sneaker

Sep 3, 2019

Category: Style

It’s not often that Red Wing Shoes branches into the realm of stylish sneakers, but when they do, it’s a noteworthy event. Recently, the brand announced that they’d be teaming up with the prolific footwear proprietors at New Balance to create a new and improved version of the company’s famous M997 — and, as expected, they didn’t fall short on its delivery.

The New Balance x Red Wing M997 sneaker is a dramatic take on the icon, offering a luxurious new upper, tasteful branding, and enhanced materials to bring it to the next level of bespoke construction. In place of NB’s traditional textiles, you’ll find a healthy mixture of high-profile suede and leather, giving the shoe a heavier silhouette, overall. Tasteful branding from both companies can be found throughout the shoe, including a “MADE IN USA” stamp on its tongue, Red Wing labeled insoles, and a contrasting heel counter and tab. The M997’s creamy colorway makes it even more appealing, thanks to a mixture of tonal browns, reds, and an off-white midsole. The premium New Balance x Red Wing M997 will be available on September 6 via Sneakersnstuff for $315.
