Inspired by the sea comes the New Balance »Costal Pack«. The new pack consists of two colorways of the New Balance 997 and a new 998 model.
Originally released in 1991, the New Balance 997 was the fourth model in the 990 series and was the first to merge the technology of shock-absorbing ENCAP and C-CAP. The brand has maintained the authenticity of the debut style by using the original materials and technology when suitable. The predominately navy pigskin and mesh upper includes a synthetic cuff, knit tongue backer, reflective »N« logo, soft synthetic lining and blown rubber outsole.
The New Balance M997LBH »Coastal Pack« is inspired by oysters served with salt. The pink colorway is reminiscent of the pink salt that can be served with the oysters, while the grey details at the heel reminiscent of the shell of an oyster.
