If you’re a lover of retro style shoes, then the New Balance 997H Cordura release is the perfect addition to your closet. This pair of sneakers offers a fun and colorful take on the vintage 997 New Balance.
The classic 997 was designed by Seven Smith, a legend in the shoe design industry. However, the updated New Balance 997H Cordura brings in a new ENCAP midsole, which gives the shoe a lighter feel, and foam has been directly injected into the midsole. The original shoe had it layered, which opened up the possibility of separation. With the New Balance 997H Cordura throwback, it feels far lighter and more agile than the original. Also, the color combination is fun, bringing in shades of blue, orange, and yellow, plus the classic stitched on iconic “N” logo. And for just $90, this is an affordable throwback design when compared to other models the manufacturer offers.
